    I've been dehydrated my whole life.

    My body doesn't tell me I need to drink until my mouth is so dry it's difficult to taste. I'm pretty sure my body fails to release whatever the thirsty hormone is. I just don't have the urge, I have to force myself to drink water.

    I drink about 4-5 liters a day.

    Wake up so often every night to drink. The skin feels so good when you wake up. :D Tend to drink more but a doc friend said "your body is electrolytic, need to balance it with salt". I was thinking, maybe potato chips will work? :D

    From Juice To Water

    I drink water everyday.

    I don't really drink juice. I probably would if there no water In your house but the sink. I don't drink soda like I do with water. I order out I get water. I buy something from a restaurant I get water. I'm a water freak

    Ever since I've been introduced to coffee at

    the age of 16, I have been drinking it nonstop. I've now come to the age where I know I would need it the most because of work but at the same time, concerned that too much of it will be bad for me. So I try and drink water instead.

    A Question For You.

    I like my Volvic, Evian and Badoit, yes, I'm drinking more! Water is the clear choice to drink. Drinking, drinking, drinking using a straw. Sitting to pee on the toilet or the sink!

    Can someone help me out.

    I try to drink more water because apparently it helps with weight loss. But after having 3 or 4 sips I start to feel sick and don't want to drink anymore. Why? And how much water should I drink if I'm on a strict diet.

    I get constant migraines

    and headaches so I have taken to drinking lots of water and just water on its own, so sadly no more coffee β˜• Hopefully with a clearer head I will be able to think better and be less negative, idk, just a guess.
