    What you do is get a small bottle, fill it with water, and put it next to your laptop/PC/wherever you're most in the day. Just keep sipping at it, and when it's empty, fill it up again... you'll be surprised how quickly you go through several bottles.

    Come on!
    You'd be going every 5 mins!
    Yeah I know it seems a lot but I basically go downstairs and down around 3 glasses in a row.

    Ooh if eight glasses is only 4 pints then I drink a hell of a lot more than that every day. I keep a pint glass one the go at home and get through at least 8 of them a day. I'm in and out the loo a lot but I feel really dehydrated if I don't get enough water.

    I had throat problems and kept losing my voice. Doc suggested one and a half litres a day. Just build up to it. You can count tea and coffee in your limit if you have decaff. Def feel better if I drink all the water I'm supposed to. Great for fending off tiredness.

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

    That statistic is bunk btw. It depends on all sorts, the temperature, how much physical exercise you're getting, your metabolism, all sorts. Drink plenty, definately, but don't feel like you're going to die if you don't reach some sort of standard.

    No not really cos you're lying.
    12 glasses in 6 minutes
    => 1 glass in 30 seconds

    1 glass requires about 30 gulps
    so 1 gulp a second.

    Sorry i'm not buying it.

    Thats what i do at work, drinking and collecting water is a good way to get out of actually working...

    I think i drank 10 750ml bottles worth today... couldnt stop going to the toilet, but healthy!
