For me, I need 2.5 liters water per day,it makes me feels well. As we all know, water is good for skin, health as well. And I'd like to drink a big cup of water after I get up in the morning, I know it's a good habit. I have it since I graduated from school, firstly it's hard, but later I get used to it, then addict to it. Which kind of water you like better, purified water or mineral spring water? I like mineral water better, but purfied water is cheaper. So I drink purfied water right now as I am poor. I love China.

Oh, amazing to know that you have to drink 5 to 7 litres per day. I know one day for 2 to 3 litres is enough for most of us, what is the temperature in the midday at you place? I live in Shenzhen(nearby Hongkong ), it's hot as well. And mostly the temperature in the midday is 33 to 35 degree, it's really hot. Thanks for your reply, Shibham.

Oh dear - do you know it is possible to drink TOO MUCH water? Drinking that amount is excessive and even in hot climates there is no way you body can handle that amount, the result is water intoxication which is potentially fatal. Read this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water_intoxication

I hope I've not yet answered this discussion. Memory's failing temporarily today, LOL... As for me, I love to drink plain water we call it here. It's equivalent to warm water...water which have been boiled and cooled down. I feel it's good for my skin, throat and good for my energy boost too. Like when the skin's dry, I feel my mood dampening, especially on warm climate where the skin on the mouth might peel or stuff like that. By drinking 8 glasses per day and more, I have good experience with my skin.

Oh, you didn't reply this topic before, but you do it now. Haha! Yes, you are right. Drinking more water is good for our skin, I drink a lot of water steadily everyday and my skin is very well. Especially it is very hot in the Northern Hemisphere now, I had more than 10 glasses per day recently, I feel bad if I didn't drink so much.

I don't have a certain quantity that I have to drink during a day. I drink just as much as I need. I think that I drink like 2-3 litres daily, it depends on weather and on how much I do physical activity that day. I also have that habit to drink cup of water every morning. I don't drink much, but it makes me feel good. I also prefer mineral water, especially when doing sports or working hard, because it helps to restore salt in my body.

Oh, 2-3 litres daily is enough for our body. But we will drink more when we are doing excise or exposure to the sunshine. Happy mylotting, Biomechanoid.

A cup of cool water is do make you feel good in summer. But it's bad for our stomatch, so we shouldn't drink it for our health. Best wishes for you, Haiershen.

Hello pengbubu , I probably drink 16 ounces of water. I mainly drink tea made from water and tea leaves and that I drink maybe about 20 ounces of tea.In the morning I get my water from the coffee and I use another 20 of water to make my daily coffee. I get my water from the tap in my home.When I travel I buy bottled water beause I rarely drink carbonated liquids.

But I can't, haha. I mean my country's tap water can't pass the standard of drinking water. Thanks a lot for your reply, Ds6413.

Admittedly I don't drink enough of anything. I have actually embarked on a healthy lifestyle program which consists of drinking green tea in a morning then around 1.5 to 2 litres of water throughout the day. I always drink tap water (I'm in the UK) because they say it's less processed than bottled stuff.

One day 1.5 to 2 litres of water is enough for our body. Seem that your country's tap water passed the drinking standard water, but I can't, I have to buy it for store. Because my country's tap water can't pass the drinking standard water. Happy mylotting, Hairpits.

I agree that drinking at least 8 glasses of water or more is not just a good healthy habit. It has a lot of benefits too. During my childhood years I was already educated about this. I see it's importance especially during this high technology who has a lot of instant drinks to offer. With a lots of additives and other strong ingredients. That affects our immune system. Drinking 2 glass of water right after you woke up its a healthy habit too. It flushes toxins inside our body. It cleanses our intestines too. Somebody share that idea to me. It also lowers cholesterol. This is a good topic, I hope you guys will drink 8 glasses of water or more everyday.

Thanks, I drink a cup of water after getting up everyday, it's do a good habit. But two glass of water is a little more for me, I can't drink so much. I think I will have a try, just have a try. Haha! Happy everyday, Kizzzmo.

When I am at home, I usaully drink at least 2 glasses per hour.. I like to drink a lot of water. And because of that, I often go to the C.R. to release. LOL Drinking water is healthy compared to drinking softdrinks. For me, Clean water is good enough to drink.
@pengbubu (1015)

Yes, water is better than softdrinks. I like it better than softdrinks, even softdrinks tastes better than water. Haha,

I drink 6 glasses of water daily. If it is summer, then I drink around 7 to 8 glasses of cold water everyday. Yes, water is the most healthy of all. Water is like the key to disease prevention. I drink any kind of water, be it purified or mineral spring. For me, both are still water and taste the same.

I used like cold water, I don't drink it now. It's do feel better and can easily cool me down. But it's harmful to ourbody, so I give up. Like you, purified water and mineral spring water are the same to me but purified water is more cheap, I choose purified water, then. According to my current economic situation.

I used to drink water maybe once per month, but then I started taking medicine that dehydrated me. Now, I drink about 4-6 liters per day just to keep from worsening my headaches due to dehydration. I, too, drink purified water -- I don't much like mineral water, but I've only tried it once.

Especially during the summer now, I consume 2 to 3 bottles of water a day. I don't drink too much soda, trying to get healthy a little bit with track practice. If it's blazing outside, i'll have my mouth under the water tap all day lol
