    I want to tell you you're not, and you should get over yourself.

    Do they? Quality of drinking water seems a strange thing to develop a superiority complex over.

    I buy 1.5L bottles in bulk when they're reallllyyyyy cheap.

    It's convenient to measure how much you're drinking, I just pack 3 bottles with me and make sure to finish them by the end of the day.
    Not to mention I usually use the empty bottles for other things when i'm done.
    Why? Why do you need to drink that much and measure your intake?

    Ok whilst I'm here can we please talk about the marketing of that so-called ''smart water'' lmao. I've only bought it when it's been really cheap and it tastes no different to normal water.
    This ^^^

    I see loads of people drinking this "smart water" but there's nothing special about it, water is just water to me, no matter where it comes from.

    Tbh though, I prefer drinking anything other than water I actually want to drink something with an actual taste or flavour

    Bloody hate Saka mineral water...how can water be "award-winning"? Idiots. Water having taste is subjective anyway, some people think there is a taste, some think there isn't. Whatever, the fact of the matter is that water is a vital necessity.

    Also, all I had to do was take one look at the back to find out how it became so popular so quickly "manufactured by coca cola industries".

    If you buy bottled water 99% of the time you're a chump.
    Just found this.

    Water does taste different. It's different in different regions and they put flouride into the water stream. An intake of too much flouride has been linked to various disorders etc in growing kids/teens.

    That being said spend your money on what you want. Stop hating just because you're too poor to afford Fiji water (jokes)

    Not all tap water tastes the same. Soft water tastes horrible (to me at-least).
