I am a hard drinker but not alcohol, Everyday i drink 15 glasses of water i know it's hard to believe but that's really true. I've been doing this since i was kid my dad had always told me that maybe there's something wrong with my internal system. But the doctors found nothing in my whole system. So what do you think? Is it just by nature or this could be a disorder?

Hey chuck2! The human organism should take every day on average about 2-3 liters of water.So drinking 15 glasses of water is not that hard to believe. I drink the same amount like you or even more now that it's summer!I think you should drink more water to keep your body healthy! Happy mylotting

Thats great if you ca be consistent in drinking 15 glasses of water each day. I am not consistent.During hot summer months I drink a lot of water but when the waether cools down my water consumption too decreases which is really not very good...I think what you are doing is excellent for your health , body,skin ...just carry on with it and I am sure youthat you will reap long term benefits - all the best

Normally I would go through 2 glasses, but lately because of the heat, someday that I have 3 glasses. Bear in my that a 'glass' for me is actually a real gallon. I am a big guy that do a lot of stuff so big muscles need hydration (strange that after drinking 1 gallon of water that I would still crave it). I don't follow that 8 glass rule since I drink 8 glasses in 5 minutes. I literally have to carry a gallon of water with me at all times so I don't get thirsty. In fact, I have given up drink water out of a traditional glass unless I am at someone's house (to take a glass down in roughly 2 gulps. What I have to do is fill a jug up and freeze it so that I can have it with me the next day. Warm water does me no good when it is hot outside. It doesn't even feel like I am drink a gallon at at time anymore, though people joke about me singlehandedly drying out a river, or wrecking boating season because the water level is too low, or a town's water tower is empty. Sorry.

It all depends on how big those glasses are.I have heard that the amount of water our body needs everyday is somewhere about 2 and a half liters.That is why I drink about 8 glasses per day when I am not too busy with my work.When I work I rarely think of water which I know is not healthy for me but this is just the way it happens.

I don't think drinking too much water is wrong. I think its okay. Its only water. I also drink lots of water. Probably about 10 glasses of water a day. And it increases if its really hot.
