It's very important to drink water all the time and especially in the summer.The advise is to drink 8-12 glass of water everyday no matter in what season.I drink 4-6 glass of water everyday and I know that is not enough - I must try to drink more.What about you?

I don't drink enough water in a day's time. Usually one bottle of water each day is about my limit. It's a 9 ounce bottle. What I do is put a small amount of water in the bottle when finished and put in the freezer. Next time I want cold water, I take it out of the freezer and add tap water. The water will stay cold for hours.

I read from article Drinking Water, the human body is anywhere from 55% to 78% water depending on body size, to function properly the body requires between one and seven liters water per day to avoid dehydration; the precise amount depends on the level of activity, temperature and humidity and other factors. I drink water everyday maximum 1,5 liters per day, but sometimes I forget to drink water.

yes i use to drink water 6 glasses per day. water is very essential for our body to maintain its health especially in summer season. because it is time we lose water from our body in a large amount by sweating. so we will get tired very fast. so we must not forget to drink water even if we are not thirsty to drink water.

I try to drink 8 glasses of water a day, I think I normally drink about 6. My probablem is I often drink fizzy drinks instead of water just because I prefer the taste and also the sugar rush! I know I should drink more water, it's often just reminding myself to have the healthier option over something else!

I drink water by the bottle. A 16.9 bottle to be exact. I do this so I can freeze some of the water and then fill the rest so it is always cold. I drink anywhere from three to eight of them a day.

I have a special water filter that also chills the water in my kitchen. It holds about 5 litres, and I drink probably 3/4 of that every day. I like chilled water, it just seems easier to drink, but if it comes from the tap, forget it! lol.

I'm doing good to drink one or two. I try to drink more water and less cola but I can't seem to keep it up. I wish I could. My skin looks so much better when I drink more water plus my appetite is much less.

i am really poor in drinking a glass of water. i don't like the way water tastes. i only drink more water during hot summer days or when doing something that caused me sweat too much and makes me really thirsty. but now i am trying as hard as i can to drink more glass of water daily. now i almost drink 6-8 glasses of water. and i noticed that my metabolism and digestion becomes good too. so i think i will try to make it a habit now.

I know when I diet cool water is a must and it does help out your body a great deal . The only thing that always bothers me is I have to use the bathroom too much with that much water .

I really don't know exactly how much water I drink because I drink all day long..except for coffee in the morning. I live in S. Florida so the heat and humidity constantly have me thirsty. My body has become so used to drinking water that when I don't drink enough my lips get chapped. Plus it is good for your body..you should drink enough so that your urine is almost clear...most people don't know that.

I am not really regular water drinker sometimes I drink much water about 10 glasses or even more and sometimes I drink one or two. Today I went to the centre of the town with my father and as we know that now, during the tourist season, it is quite impossible to find a parking place we decided to go by foot. On our way back I bought 1L of water and it was gone before we get home although my father didn't drink much. I drank at least 0.7L in less than half an hour. And when I got home I had another 0.3L glass and I still feel thirsty. Several days ago I was at home working behind my computer all the day and around 5 in the afternoon my head started hurting so my Mum asked me how many glasses of water I had that day. I sad 1. And I really had just 1 glass of water that day. No wonder I had such a strong headache. Water is really important specially during hot days.

This topic brought a smile to my face. My intentions of drinking 8 glasses are there. LOL! I just keep on forgetting! Specially when I was pregnant, I had to program an alarm on my phone so I wont forget! LOL! Drinking a lot of water has proven its worth alot of time already. If only I would remember to drink often.

I agree with you that water is very important for us. But no matter how much I try, I either forget to drink enough amount of water or I just cannot drink more than 4 or 5 glasses. But I do drink tea (with Milk) several time in a day. Is it OK if I replace water with tea.........and when I am at home I just don't feel thirsty.....how should I make it a habit to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. Nice discussion. Thanks.

As of yesterday I started to try to get the 8-10 glasses of water we are all supposed to have every day. I saw a piece on UK tv where they are introducing this in care homes for the elderly and they reckon it will improve quality of life and cut down on medical bills. I flt as though I had more nergy and could concentrate better. There's a big glass of water nearby (not too near the pc though!) and I'm really going to give this my best efforts. Promise!

I definitely don't drink enough water. I know this sounds strange but I really don't enjoy the taste. I've been trying to improve this by getting bottles of flavoured water. I can drink that
