A thirsty dwarf prefers to drink [[booze]].  If none is available, they will go to the nearest [[water]] source and drink. This is usually a [[well]] inside your fortress, but they will drink from a [[river]] or [[brook]] if there are no wells nearby, and have been observed to drink from [[murky pool]]s if there are no other sources of water.  A dwarf can live on water indefinitely if there is no booze to be had, but their speed and thus efficiency at work and in combat will suffer - dwarves are highly dependent on alcohol.

Dwarves seem to be capable of subsiding on [[vomit]] and slime in particularly dire times, though this is traumatizing and will quickly result in [[tantrum]]s and [[insanity]]. This will usually only happen in cases of dwarves walling themselves in and being forgotten and in challenging embark locations.

A [[rest|resting]] dwarf will not do anything on their own until they have recovered from recent injuries (preferably inside a [[hospital]]), and will depend on others to provide them with food and drink. They will not be given booze but receive water carried in [[bucket]]s.
