I also drink a lot of soda... but i also try to drink a lot of water... so you can just imagine the number of times i have to go to the bathroom in order to pee... there are times when i try to just drink soda while having a meal... then lots of water in between... this is like the way i balance my liquid intake...

You are just like my uncle. He's like a heavy soda drinker but no matter how much he drinks - same amount with water, too , that he drinks so whenever I am at there house, he goes to the bathroom a lot. I really admire him because he's really into water and if he looks at his skin, he has a beautiful soft skin - all because of water. =)

It's a good advice and you should obey it. Drinking enough water is good for our health. It also keeps our body's water level balance. Drinking healthy water also good for our kidney. I think you should start drinking enough water as your habit. About soda, it's not good for your bones and your stomach. Let start a healthy life. Have a nice day and happy mylotting.

I know and my mom is a nurse so I could not agree with her more since she knows the causes and effects of the disease and as much as we can, water is really important in our body. I should practice the habit. =)

Drinking more soda will have injury to the health. The soda will consume calcium in supersession course, will accelerate the human calcium to run off. Soda contain much heat, no other nutrition except the heat either, but modern person is no lack of heat, these surplus heat will consume vitamin and microelement so to influence the health of human body, it is very apt to accumulate into the fat at the same time. This is a kind of food lacking the nutritive value seriously, it is harm rather than good if have drank too much. Propose drinking more water.

Hello totallyundecided! I am not a water drinker either but they said that I have to drink water as much as I can. So eventhough I don't feel like it, I forced myself to drink water..hehehe.. By the way, soda is not really good for us especially if you drink it more than the water. I think it would cause a lot of health problems.

I drink eight to ten glasses per day, this gives me plenty of bathroom time. I do try to keep my mouth moist and since I have a disease that caused dry mouth, I really have to work at this.

Yes, now a days ; in summers I have been drinking close to 10 glasses of water everyday . It is due to the very hot climate we had been having prior to the rains we recived in last few days .
