    I hear all the time about how people don't drink enough water. I guess you're supposed to drink at least 8 glasses of water per day. I like water just fine if I'm thirsty, but forcing water down just doesn't seem right. Doesn't your body tell you what it wants, and how much? I'd be interested to know about people that consciously drink water just for the sake of drinking it for health reasons.

    I drink about 3-4 glasses of water a day in bottle form. My mom drinks about 8.. she always has though. She hates the taste of anything but tea or water. It's supposed to help flush toxins out of your system or some crap.. i dunno

    i was a 4+ a day 20oz diet pepsi drinker, but I also always liked water.

    About 3 months ago I'll only have a pepsi in for lunch, and I'll drink at least 6 32oz glasses of water a day (The cup is a 48oz cup that i pack with ice so i call it 32oz) I smoke too .. so always got to have somethin to drink too ...

    anyways, already noticed the poundage dropping ..

    and the diet pepsi tastes worse and worse each day ..

    only problem now is i have to pee at least once an hour. lol :)

    I will typically drink about 100 fl. oz. of water throughout the day. I just sip at it throughout the day and fill it up when I need to. I don't do it for a specific reason other than I like having something around to drink.

    2 liters minimum, often a little more, sometimes 3 liter.
  11. I'm at about 5-6 bottles a day. I used to do more, it's helped me lose alot of weight.
  12. Same here. If I'm out working somewhere though, nothing quenches thirst better than water. I cringe when I see somebody who's really sweating tilt up a mountain dew or something. ugh.

    I think it does flush out toxins AND crap.

    I try to drink a lot of water when I'm at work. I probably drink about 40 oz of plain water a day, but there's also water in food and other drinks too.
  14. Water smells like bleach in NY.
  15. Between 1 and 2 liters.

    I can honestly say that I do not drink water; at all.

    I drink coffee in the morning.

    I drink coffee with lunch.

    I drink diet soda with dinner and I drink coffee after dinner.

    At night I have a bunch of diet soda.

    NEVER water.

    I try to drink as much as I can, probably not enough but I am a compulsive ice chewer at home so I'm sure that helps.

    Maybe a glass or two a day, a soda, a cup of coffee, and a bunch of juice. In the summer I drink a ton of water, since every rehersal space is 1000 degrees, and the kitchen I work in is at least 2000.
