Drinking Water Watch
I've recently realised that I am only drinking one glass of water every few days.
I have a glass of orange juice in the morning, orange squash/pepsi mid morning, pepsi for lunch, pepsi again mid afternoon, milk for dinner and pepsi or orange squash at night.
(If Pepsi lost most of their customers, I guess i'd be enough to keep them in business )
I was kind of surprised when I realised that I hardly drink water. I don't like the taste of it, so I think that's why I never really thought of it as a drink.
Today I have had three glasses so far, trying to do one glass each hour.
What benefits will I get from drinking more water? (And don't say 'it helps your cells' because that means nothing to me :P)
I do realise I need to drink more water though. When I have blood tests they always tell me my veins are hard to find and this is because I don't drink enough water. Also I'm prone to bladder and kidney infections.
So long as you don't have any health problems you probably are getting enough water
Besides the fact water is a better hydrator it will also prevent your teeth rotting in comparison to pepsi. I drink at least 4-5 litres of water a day and have done for the past few months. You'll go to the toilet a lot but you'll feel so much better, more alert and its good for your skin. It's a good idea to drop the pepsi quite so frequently and switch it for a water.

The water in my area is hard water, so it has limescale or something in which makes it look disgusting (he has tiny white bits floating around in it) as well as taste horrible.
I can't give up the Pepsi! But I will try and drink water when I am thirsty, instead of pepsi (but I will still have some! :P)
hardly used to drink water but kidney stones have since said otherwise...
