Dipsomania is the new word of the day.

I’ve known so many people who have this problem and I’ll bet most of you know at least one person who also has this problem.  Although this is not related in any matter to real estate when I saw the meaning of the word I just had to post it.  Now for the meaning of (dip’se ma’ne) is an abnormal and insatiable craving for alcoholic drink.  So how few or many do you know?

haha I definitely am not a dipsomania. Unless 2 sips of a mixed drink qualifies when it spans a lifetime. I have had plenty of bad habits but that isn't one of them. Where do you come up with these words?

Hi James,

I have a family member that was that way till he almost died.

No he would'nt touch the stuff. Too bad others were not this way.

I have never had this problem, but my heart goes out to those who do have this problem.

Best, Clint McKie

Now I can us dipsomania instead of whatelse I may use. Unfortunately, this is a problem that has harmed many a person.

Thank you for sharing this new word with all of us.

Ha. Now I can say your Sacramento short sale has turned this agent into a dipsomania. I don't think the craving of one drink is a bad thing -- now, the craving to down a bottle is quite another.

Well I enjoy a good glass of red wine but I am happy to say that I do not have dipsomania.....but if you have a word for an abnormal chocolate craving I'm in.

What an odd word!  Who knows where that came from.  Doesn't really describe anything and who would know it?
