Philippines

no coffee, no cola, no juice, no beer or anything liquid to drink just water. i mean food is not the question. you can eat anything you can eat but can you just drink water only? i dont think i can do that. i am a cola person, a coffee person and a ice lemon tea person. i drink a lot of water everyday but i still drink coffee specially in the morning, cola when having lunch and ice lemon tea during dinner. i am not a beer drinker so i can live without beer har har har. wait i forgot to put milk i drink milk too. i also drink energy drinks every once in a while. so can you live with just water alone no other drink?

Ok, you are talking about liquids. Alright, first I thought you were talking about living on water only. Yes, if it absolutely necessary then i may live on water alone. Although I drink milk, coffee etc but I was on water for one or two months when our family was in financial crisis!

I didn't notice. I used to be underweight for my entire life. It is only now that I have normal weight. So, I was afraid to get my weight. You know because when that weight would be in my hands, it would only be giving me dissapointments. So, I don't know if I lost weight in those two months. Next time when I will be on water, I will try to remember your question.

Of course i can live with water only for short term if i can not have other drinks but have food, I prefer water over other sugarcoated drinks whenever possible. I will say it is impossible for me to live by water only for more than a week because i will miss my milk and coffee in the morning. Happy Mylotting!

Yes my friend, i am just a human being, not an animal that can drink water only for survival. In our highly commercialized world, it is almost impossible for us not to drink any liquid other than water to fulfill our craving since we are brought up with various healthy and not so healthy drinks in the course of our life, i am very much addicted to some of them already, lol!!

goodluck on losing weight my friend. i am also kind of heavy but i would rather exercise than just drink water har har har. it is not easy to kick out old habits. bad habits hard to break. i use to drink tons of cola before but my wife introduced to me drinking juices and tea and fruit juices too. so now i am not much of a cola person but still taking it one step at a time. atleast now i have variety not just cola. thanks a lot for the response

I can't do any kind of exercise due to my condition. But I'm really trying to loose weight by reducing my food intakes and drinking a lot of water. You're very welcome my friend...

[i]Hi se7, I am a coffee lover too and It will be hard for me to survive without it.. I was a coke addict before but tried to eliminate it in my system! LOL! So, I will say, I will still survive but will be tough for me to get to used forgetting my coffee every morning! LOL![/i]

i love coffee too and i am a cola addict. thanks for having a pasensyosa wife now i can also drink cold tea and other fruit juices. i still do drink cola specially when i feel down, but at least now i do have some variety. thanks a lot for the response and it is really nice to see you back. i am not used to seeing your response on the far end of my discussion but i am glad to see you.

I can if i really wanted to and if there is no other option if other beverages and drinks are not available. If you challenge yourself to do one thing which is impossible to do since you are used of doing it, then my friend it is really discipline that counts. Anyway it will be also beneficial to your body if you only take water to drink. There is no such medical proof that taking only water will reduce your healthy lifestyle. And besides water is a natural source, since God made it, the rest of the drink, it is man made. If my husband would challenge me to take only water for one whole month, i can do it. He must be really happy because he will not spend on soft drinks or juices that we buy in the grocery heheh!

I can. And actually I do! I cant drink cafinated products. I absulutly hate drinking milk. Tea and coffee are YUCKY! I drink only water water water! And you know what I rarely get water infections and I rarely get sick! Water is the best. I must admit that I do drink bottled water alot because my tap water tastes like rust! Its a bit expensive but not half as expencive as pop! I tried an energy drink once and wow was I ever hyper I never slept for 3 days I was go go go! Well the good thing came out of it was I got my house cleaned from top to bottom! My kids are the oposite they both will not drink any water. They only drink milk. And sometimes grape juice. But mostly milk! I go threw a 2l of milk a day with 2 kids! My dad is a pepsi freak! He drinks soo much pepsi he doesnt even go to the store without a bottle of pepsi with him. He goes threw a 2l bottle a day!

not really possible to live with water alone. you need some food and shelter and air. if only water is needed then who need other things out there. but one thing for sure, the basic need for life is water. even the small things of the earth needs water may be with water alone you can live for next 2 days but not always http://reachinformation.com/define/water.aspx - has more information about water

definitely, i can live by water alone but having soda, iced tea, juice or coffee can make life more better :) . water is kinda plain, but as long as it can quench my thirst, that will be enough if i had no other choice.
• Philippines
20 Feb 09
wow very good response tio. soda, iced tea, juices or coffee can make life more better. very good. i will rate your response positive for that. yes just imagine on a celebration you will just drink water while everyone is drinking any drink they desire. well based on your answer now i can say that i can live just on drinking water but it would be better if there are other drinks around. thanks a lot for the response

I am afraid i couldn't live only by the water.for my tast,only to drink ,it's so monotonous and boring.when i wake up in the moring ,i like drinking some milk and eat some bread; eating some cola in the lunch and drink some coffee after dinner in the evening.so i think can't only live with water. for the body,i am afraid only drinking some water not eat some other foods is bad for your health,your body coulnd't stand for long time. so we are lucky we have lots of drinking and many kinds of foods!

welcome to the wonderful world of mylot haf. your post is very good. it is more than four lines. you continue doing that then you will see that you will earn easily. posting from four lines then your post is qualified as an earning. goodluck. thanks a lot for your response and i think we are the same. that we might not live with drinking water alone for it will soon be boring. just think that you will drink cold water on a hot day and drink hot water on a cold day. har har har. that will drive me crazy.

Same here, I am a cola person, geez can't count how much I consume in a day! Must be too much but I can't help it I am a cola addict, can't kick the habit. The only time I stopped drinking cola was when I was having my baby girl, doctor told me to stay away from the sweets as it was messing with my blood sugar level or something. It was really hard for me, but I did it for my baby. I guess I could live without it if was really necessary but life is so much sweeter with the sweets.

i used to drink 8-10 cans of cola a day. specially in a hot weather. i am from the philippines and it is mostly humid or hot here. since i lived in with my gf (now wofe for 6 years) she taught me how to drink other healthy drinks. like fresh juice, fruit shakes, smoothies, tea, energy drinks. so i now have variations. not like before all i like is cola. but still i take one tiny step at a time. ican sometimes go for 2 - 3 days without cola then crave for it on the fourth day. something like that. so to live water alone i can say so far i am improving but please water alone is boring. har har har thanks a lot for the response

It really depends on what you mean by that, haha.. If you mean physically, of course you will live, everyone can live with just water.. The problem is that without your usual substances, you will feel uncomfortable at the initial stage, but dont worry, human are highly adaptable creatures, you will get used to it in no time, haha.. Oh, by the way.. even heroin addicts can kick the habit.. no doubt you will be able to kick your drinking habits if you are willing to.. Cheers, Happy mylotting

thanks a lot for the response. yes you havea good point. i can sure like without all those beveredges and can live with water only specially if it was a doctors suggestion to stop drinking all of those and just drink water. it would bea boring life for me har har har... but i am sure it will not be harmful. thanks for the response

I really really love to drink coffee and tea (and soda now and then) but I think I could drink ONLY water... it would have to be ICE water. I try to drink as much water as I can, but I can only drink a lot of it if is very cold. But ice is water too... so I guess that counts... lol. So yes, I think I could do it! XOXO
• Philippines
20 Feb 09
yes busibee ice is water too in solid form. i can drink a lot of ice cold water but that might be boring if i drink water for two days. ok if cola is not good for the health then atleast fruit juices. i really cant stand water alone i might go crazy . congrats on your star, as i am commenting on your response you are now on your 101 (dalmatian har har har) post. goodluck and happy mylotting and thanks a lot also for the response

Nope. I know I can't. I hate water. It has no flavor. I always have to put those little flavor packets in my water or make tea. The only time I can handle plain water is when I am out in the heat and thirsty. I don't drink a lot of coke products as I prefer tea more than anything. If I had to survive on plain water only, I would have to force myself to drink it through a straw just so I wouldn't dehydrate. Lol

har har har.... water can be boring once you drink just water for a whole day. i love tea too but not the hot tea. maybe it is hot already in our country that i would rather drink cold tea than hot tea. i love cold drinks that hot once but i drink hot coffee in the morning. thanks a lot for the response

At first I was thinking no. But after I thought about it I realized that I could probably live with just water, especially if I could eat whatever I wanted. I drink coffee, but only if it's convenient. I don't go out of my way to make it or buy it. If I have to make a cup for my hubby, I'll also make one for myself, that is unless I have to get up early to make it for him, then I'll just go back to bed when I'm done. If its really hot outside and I happen to be getting donuts from Dunkin Donuts then I'll get an ice coffee, but I won't make a special trip just for the coffee. I don't really drink soda that much. If it's on sale I'll buy it but once it's gone, I'm back to water. I bought Crystal Light to put into water on occasion but it's so expensive I don't buy it often and I still have some from a purchase from about 6 months ago so I guess I don't use it that often. So my answer is yes. I would absolutely be able to live with just water.

good for you. for me who loves cola, coffee and juices it will be hard for me to drink water alone. it will be boring for me i guess. maybe i can go with water for two days in a cold weather but on a hot weather i cant live with water alone. maybe because i will be craving for a different taste. thanks a lot for the response. and congrats for your star. your post is 109 while i am commenting. goodluck and keep it up

Yes I did that once. I believe that we are able to do this because are body is really made up of 80 percent of water. Basically it is our basic means of survival. We probably won't survive if we just eat food and had no water to drink.
• Philippines
19 Feb 09
wow you did tried it already? good for you. but what is the reason why you stop drinking water only? does it bores you? yes i dont think we cant survive with food alone we also have water. one of the important needs of man is water. thanks a lot for the response

Of course I could with just water. Whenever I get in into my head to diet, I just drink water...lots of them. However, I do have cravings for coffee and I live and breath coffee. He he he! If given the choice, I won't take just water but if its out of necessity, then why not. I love water when its super cold.
• Philippines
19 Feb 09
i think each and everyone of us love ice cold water, but sometimes water alone is not enough. like you said that you live and breath for coffee... if you will drink just water only it will become boring already. some drinks acknowledges a vertain food. thanks a lot for the response
