how many glass of water do you drink in a day? they say that it is healthy to drink 8-10 glasses a day... i use to drink less water during my elementary to college days and then i developed this sickness what you call urinary tract infection.. after having that sickness and realized how painful it is, i tried drinking lots of water as much as possible.. then i stopped drinking agad.. then my UTI recurred again.. so i went back to drinking lots of water again. how about you? how many glass of water do you drink in a day?

I try to drink more like you do but often I just forget about it because my life mode is very active.. I even started to carry couple of bottles together with me in my bag..

You have important reason to drink the water, so you remember it all the time.. I just know that to drink the water is useful and necessary for health but I don't do it.. ironic isn't it?

I say I drink about 8 glasses or more a day now. I'm a really big fan of juice. I can drink that all day if I could. If I drink to much of it my back starts to really hurts. So I have to drink water to flush out my Kidneys. So now I trying to drink more water then juice!

No I haven't. It's when I'm trying to bend over and twist at my wasit when I really feel it. A few of my friends have the same problem when they drink alot of soda and not enough water. I haven't had the pain in over a year after cutting out drinking a lot of juice and just water!

I don't have the habit of drinking cold water. I always want to have some hot drinks. Since, coffee is not advisable, I take tea or chocolate drinks. I guess that will make me drink 5 to 6 glasses in a day. Of course, it isn't enough! hehe! Yes, it's a good practice to drink as much as 10 glasses a day. That will make our body system work better. Which makes me wonder, if you don't drink water, will the body dry up?

to answer your question, our body continues to secrete fluid in different forms.. it may be thru perspiration, urination, tear production.. so if you dont replace your body with fluids, it could lead to dehydration. now if dehydration occurs, you'll be very weak that you need to be confined in a hospital for maybe a day or two but still it depends on the level of your dehydration..

I think a glass normally majors 250ml of water, on an average. If not I would assume my glass to be of 250ml :) In that case I usually consume about 6 glasses or 1.5 liters of water in a day, which is not that good, I need to take it up to at least 2 liters or 8 glasses everyday. If its winter or monsoon, one doesn't sweat much and the need of water is comparatively less than in summer. so may be 8 glass water would be good. Thanks!

yup.. 240 to 250ml. wow. that is great you drink more than a liter in a day. that will help in keeping your body healthy and may help prevent yourself from having bad illnesses especially our urinary tract organs.

i don't mind how many glasses that i consumed for water, for as long as im not thirsty and my stomach is not aching :)... let me think, probably around 10 or 11 maybe...

I try to drink 8-10 glasses a day, it helps me feel full. And it's good for health and all. I smoke so drinking water helps me loose the poison, well, at least I hope so.

5-6 glasses is good enough.. at least you manage to take time to drink water in a day right?

sad to say but no I don't... I am really not a water drinker either like some others here... I do though when I'm extreamly thirsty and need something more than just coffee or juice.. I am a huge coffee drinker... I drink it from the time I wake up to the time I go to bed... I do add milk to it as well.. Rather that helps it any or not I don't know... But was told from my doctor to drink less a day and more water!

Hello dear skbh. I usually drink around five glasses of water or more when I work in the office, but on my days off, I usually forget to drink water as much as I can. Yeah, I also think that drinking enough water is good to our health. Sometimes I can drink a lot more water at different time. Water helps clean our body.

I try so hard to drink lots of water. It is difficult because the more I drink the more I have to pee. I am almost always thirsty though. I have noticed that the first thing in the morning, I drink a whole 20 oz bottle of water. Then 20 oz of crystal light on the way to work. I sip at work. Then on the way home another 20 of water. During the evening, I average 2 more bottles of water. There is also a few diet rites in there and a cup or two of tea.
