    Can't Get Enough Water..

    I drink water non-stop all day. I know that is because my medication makes my mouth dry and so does all the I coffee drink.  But there's also that part of me that it satistifies my oral fixation and settles my nerves to be doing something all day. I don't salt my food and...

    Probably Because

    I am a sensitive person who cries easily and I drink water to restore what I have lost. Water is what makes me feel better.

    Several Bottles Daily.

    I have been drinking about four water bottles everyday.  I do not drink soda at all, maybe once a month.  I just hate the taste it leaves in my mouth.

    Dehydration Isn't Fun

    I've been dehydrated a couple of times and blacked out and got some nasty stomach cramps. It was painful and it sucked. I never want to do that again, so I make sure to drink a little more than enough water every day.

    2 Litres At Least

    A good few litrea a day. I actually carry around two bottles of water wherever you go - you never know when you might become thirsty!! I also prefer it to orange juice, coke, tea etc. Much more better - somehow

    My Beverage Of Choice

    I drink at least 3 liters of water each day.On summer days, at work, I can drink as much as a liter every hour and a half. I keep one in the freezer and one with me all day. When one is empty, I refill it, and pop it into the freezer and take out the cold one.

    Waterbuffalo

    Funny name but I am a water monster. I drink water the way many people drink alcohol. Not enough to cause hyper hydration but more than enough to warrant a few bathroom trips. I don't know why - I just can't get enough of ice cold water.

    Two Great Big Bottles.

    I love water. Ever since I stopped drink so much alcohol my taste buds have returned and I discovered I don't really like the taste of diet drinks and I am not really going to drink full calorie drinks so water it is for me. Anyway it is healthy. - RDW

    but lately, I'm drinking around 2.5L. I can tell a major difference when I haven't had enough water. My head aches; I feel sluggish; my skin gets weird. I recently bought a Brita filter water bottle, and I love it.

    I Had Kidneystones...

    ...in 1990 and the pain was unbearable. I got in the habit of drinking lots of water to prevent it from happening again. No matter the amount of liquids you drink containing water, only drinking straight water will help keep your kidneys properly flushed.
