    Okay, I never have this much water a day or at least I don't think I do.
    I had a tea this morning, and I've had 5 large glasses of water so far today. I actually feel quite sick now. Can anyone else admit to drinking 8 large glasses of water a day?

    yeap i drink about 8 maybe more depends what you class as a glass though because obviously they are different sizes. im used to drinking only water though been doing it for years lol i remember when i first got into drink so much i felt sick at first but now i love drinking water and hate drinking stuff like fizzy drink etc.

    i once got told i had to drink about 2 litres a day to help me get better, i couldn't fit it in....at all, i just seemed to be drinking all the time and peeing all the time and only got to about a litre and a bit a day....

    but my friend drinks 2 litres a day noproblem at all....it's weird.

    anything with caffeine in doesn't count as it dehydrates you and also some medical experts also say that fruit juice doesn't count either

    I think I drink about 6 a day, not sure really as I use bottles etc. But tbh, I could easily drink about 15+ a day no problem. The thing is, I'm a lazy bugger so don't really bother to get drinks a lot.

    How can stuff like coffee/tea not count when they contain water? :confused:

    I occasionally have fizzy drinks but much less frequently than I used to.
    I dislike fast food now. It's usually once a month now or less. Haven't had a mcdonalds in months now!

    As i said, it's because of the caffeine content

    well you need quite a bit of water especially in the heat because you lose so much from sweating, fizzy drinks just make you more thristy.

    Your body may get used to it after a while not to mention if you needed it then you wouldn't always be peeing....
    Not to mention it's good for you, flushes away toxins

    A full one of these is one glass.
    I'm impressed if someone can have 15 of these in a day.
