Dehydration Sucks !

Im a college student and workin' on my final project. Everyday I'd been depended on coffee to stay awake. Consequently, I had a bad headache, facial skin problems, and I dont look fresh and healthy. Finally I tried to bring a bottle of water everywhere I go and drink it everytime I open my bag. It works grtz and now I think Im healthy again :D

I can not give up my coffee.Cutting back is my way..:)

Happy thoughts sent your way!You continue ur way to better health!make sure u eat! Amy!!or cAnDy spank u!

if you need the *kick* start the caffeine gives you, take "arginine" first thing each morning. It's an amino acid, available at your local health outlet. Is fairly cheap, and was the way I gave up coffee some 15 years ago

to drink enough water is very important. you're absolutely right and Im glad that you are healthy again. I wanna see you always healthy and happy Eva.



Hello. Thanks for this story, DollyDiva. amyMM, DD is right. I drink 2 litres of plain water a day, at least! Plain water is good for you. When you are properly hydrated, your head is clearer. Stunt Nephew (aged 4+) gets grumpy and cranky when he is thirsty; I am the adult so I remember for him when he last drank water, and I will offer it to him when I think he must be getting thirsty. He is a great water lover too!


*hugs and love* --


Oh yeah ! I agree. You don't have to stop drinking coffee but at least try to dilute it by drinking more water. I had suffered a lot of dehydration and had pimples. I hated them so I drank water more and more everyday and it helps :D

To stop coffee and drink more water i meant.difficult

Are you serious ? Amy ? lol

taking a bottle of water in the bag?
