Hi Terry, I try to drink a glass of water when I first get up, but it just doesnt hit the spot really. I have to have my coffee. I go to the kitchen start the pot, go to the bathroom and brush my teeth and wash my face, then I wait. LOL Bay Lay Gray xx

Well once I finish waiting for the coffee to brew, Im pretty much done waiting for the rest of the day. I hate waiting too, so thats a good thing. I guess I wait for my hubby to come home, but thats not really til its close to time for him to come home. LOL Is that what you meant?? Bay xx

Hi TerryZ! I have been drinking 2-3 glasses of lukewarm water every morning on an empty stomach and after 45 minutes, then that's the only time I drink coffee or hot chocolate. It has been a part of my water therapy for several months now. It helps a lot in my body system. I was not too keen on doing it before because I did have a hard time in drinking just water but I got used to it already. Take care and have a nice day. :)

I know a lot of people find it very beneficial to drink water when they first get up and it probably is healthier but nope, I'm not one of them.. give me my COFFEE, then I'll deal with drinking water later. LOL

To me, it's not strange at all. I can't drink water when I get up either. I can drink just about anything else but not water. I never thought there were other people like me, I thought maybe I was weird.lol

yup i can .... i got this japanese water therapy from email, that if want your body to naturally flush all those toxins the cheaper way, you have to drink 4 120ml glasses in the morning about an hour before breakfast. then drink water about an hour or 2 after every meal throughout the day, make sure that you drink about 8-10 glasses of water a day. I tried it, and i feel lighter, i mean i have better digestion and bowel movement. My mom tried for months now, and she's slowly getting rid of her arthritis. I had lunch with a group of priests today and i met this 86 yr old priest. I ask him what's his secret for longevity and he told me about drinking 4 glasses in morning before breakfast. It's hard the first few times, but you'll soon get used to it :-) goodluck

water  - Drinking 1 Lr of water early in the morning that to on an empty stomach is very good and useful.
I too drink water early in the morning. Sometimes I do forget if I wake up late. Drinking 1 Lr of water early in the morning that to on an empty stomach is very good and useful. It improves your skin texture and makes is more elastic and wrinkle free. It relieves constipation. It clears your skin from blemishes and pimples.

Hi TerryZ! i think we are opposite. i make it a habit to drink water after i wake up in the morning. before, a can't do that because i dont like what i feel with my stomach. but recently, a healthy tip i read that its healthy to drink a glass of water two hours before you eat a meal and drink again 2 hars after meal. we need at least to drink 8 glasses of water a day to be healthy.... and i think water help cleans our body waste..

Hello Terryz. I can drink water in the morning and I love to drink it, but I prefer tea while working in the office. I am a tea drinker. I drink water or tea to protect my throat as I have to use voice in class. Without water or tea, I find it very uncomfortable in the throat and would soon have a sore throat. So water or tea is my necessity in and out of class for the good of throat. Thanks for your discussion.

I drink tea too. Take care of that throat.LOL

Yes, I can and do drink water first thing in the morning. I probably would anyway, but I have two different pills I am supposed to take at least 30 minutes before I eat only with water. So I kind of have to. But that is good because the more water I drink the better. I want to look at it that way. : )

It's recommended for your health. It helps flash out toxins. I do drink water first time in the morning, warm water that is.

I drink plenty of water first thing in the morning. If I don't do this, I don't feel human. My Mom is not like me; she wants a cup of tea first thing in the morning to feel human. So, I guess we are made differently. I have read in many places (though I don't remember the details now) that drinking plenty of water in the morning is very good for health.

I don't like water there is no taste to it. When I get up in the morning I have to have my diet coke. I don't really wake up until I have had my diet coke in the morning. I don't like coffee either I have tried it with cream and sugar too and just can't bring myself to like it.
