How much water do you drink every day?

I think I drink about 3-4 cups every day, well short of the 7-8 experts recommend. Not to mention all of the unhealthy, dehydrating drinks I put in my system like pop and alcohol. At least I still drink more water than either of those two, though.

I never drink water on purpose, only in coffee. I live on Coke, coffee and bourbon.

I try my best to remember to drink 6-8 glasses of water as we are supposed to, but I often end up grabbing coffee or a soda instead. I remember when I was on weight watchers and was successful in weight loss, I was religious about drinking my water each day. I really think that the water helped!

I drink about 5 bottles of water a day. I try to drink as much as I can because it is really healthy for your body! I used to drink pop all the time but now I only drink one diet pop a day.

It depends on how active I am during the day. When I have soccer games, I drink more throughout the day so that I will be hydrated before, during, and after the game. On an average day, I drink about 5 bottles of water, but I will only drink the purified kind because other brands like Arrowhead taste weird to me.

I am horrible at remembering to drink water. I usually drink a lot of pop each day and try to balance it out a little with a few glasses of water but usually manage to forget.

I aim for 8 glasses a day, but sometimes fall short. I do usually get at least 6.
