I should probably also mention that this issue causes some serious problems when playing with Foodie Sims. I have seriously gotten to a point where I actively avoid giving the trait to any of my Sims now, and it's partly because of this excessive drinking issue.

My sims are drinking water (and oj and milk) excessively. Glasses on all tables and counters, also end up in inventory. Sims will get a glass of water instead of leftovers when they are hungry. will often stop eating to get a glass.
this just started happening with the recent patch. I have no mods/cc
I am currently playing young adult sims in college in windenburg

Uninvited guests just waltz into my house and grab glasses of water continuously. Happening in City Living and in Sulani. Player sims not effected, only guests and randoms coming onto the lot.

I have the same issue Dex616 has in Sulani, and I want to add that those random people also don't have a 'send home' option when this happens.
/also my own sims keep drinking water and milk (and sometimes juice)

This is getting very frustrating. I’ve seen sims who are doing the pee dance grab a glass of water instead of using the toilet. My green fiend sim is trying to save water with a dew collector, but if I don’t fill her queue up with tasks, she’s off to the sink to grab a drink. If I stop her doing that she’ll head for the fridge for juice or milk, ignoring her husband who is desperate for some quality time and has interactions with her in his queue.

I notice something very annoying. I have a spellcaster and her hygiene was getting low, like she needs to take a shower or bath, but instead of doing that she will reach to get water or get something to drink in order to think it will fill her hygiene up, as she thinks she is a Mermaid, and she isn't. If she goes to drink water or any type of drink her bladder will get low and she will have to go and it's not really helping her needs. I notice my sims are constantly drinking or trying to think drinking will help get rid of the hygiene from her meter being low and it isn't, she isn't a Mermaid, but a spellcaster. It seems we had issues like this in the past, and we've had it get fixed off and on in previous patches, but this June patch has really messed up the codes in the game to cause older games, with the newer games to override the system. I've seen Mermaids drink water to help with the hygiene but when it comes to other occults like Spellcasters or even just normal sims seem to cause this problem. I feel this needs to be re looked into by the codes from the older games to what is causing this. It seems something is overlapping to cause the older games to the newer games to seem to cause a glitch, this is just a thought I'm picking up.
I am having the issue with my sims excessively drinking water and dropping all other tasks in the que to do it as well. I started a brand new family with new sims due to another bug linked to the foodie NAP causing excessive white cake making and drinking and had not seen any issues until recently. What changed? The only two changes which would affect both sims are the self-sufficiency NAP was recently enacted and both adult sims (both spellcasters) recently developed the "refined palate" fame quirk. So far their children (no teens yet) seem unaffected.
