How much water do you drink?

How much water do you drink?

Cream in the Cupcake Cream in the Cupcake
I realized recently that I drink almost no water. I drink juice and sports drinks, and Arizonas. Im super dehydrated and have noticed new icky stretch marks. I've been trying to drink more but its difficult for me. I have clean good water but I have a hard time drinking a lot. Does anyone else have this problem?
What could be some ideas to help me drink more water?

We're supposed to drink at least 8 cups a day,

How many cups of water do you drink per day?

I think I saw some study recently saying that they had realized that 8 cups a day is really too much for most people.

If you do a search, you'll see that there's already a thread on this exact topic.

Unless I really force myself to drink the 8 cups, Im slack and will only drink 1 - 3 cups and I don't drink anything else usually.

I'm never really thirsty unless I'm working out. I usually take in about 4 cups plus water in fruits and veggies.

The whole "8 cups per day" thing is a myth. No one even knows where the idea originated.

It's debunked on

I drink approximately 6 cups of water, 1 glass of carrot juice, 1 glass of cranberry/blueberry juice, and 1 glass of orange juice daily. If I had food with lots of MSG, I'll be gulping down extra glasses of water that day.

3 cups a day i drink most of my water at nite for some reason.

I drink usually 6-8 cups. Sometimes I'll have some tea or something, but I'm not a soda drinker, and I rarely have juice. For me, it's tea or water, but usually water.

I don't really care for water and prefer anything with flavor. To keep hydrated, I'll often find a strong juice I like and then cut it with equal amounts of water. That way I'm at least keeping hydrated, and get some vitamins out of it.

During essay time I drink a TON. A gallon a day at least. It keeps me alert much better than coffee does (although coffee is a favourite to drink at this time too, though more for psychological reasons I think). During the rest of the year I probably drink 3 cups max, on average.

Not nearly as much as I should...*sigh*

The only time I don't get enough water is when I work long days. Otherwise I probably drink 9+ cups.

I used to never drink water, it literally made me gag. Now I drink tons. I get sick from dehydration if I don't.

I bought fresh lemons and cut them up and put in a container. then put one in each glass of cold filtered water.

That was years ago, now i don't need the lemon, and i drink it room temp.

I don't keep track. In my opinion...drink when you are thirsty.

I don't try to drink it all at once, but will drink a pint before exercise, one during and then usually two after. I will then have it instead of pop throughout the day. You can drink too much if you aren't careful, I had a friend whose daughter was overhydrated and starting having signs of kidney issues and potassium imbalances.

I usually drink a little over a gallon a day. Of course, I space it out throughout the entire day.

I'm lucky if I drink any. For the most part I find that water has a funky taste to it, even bottled.

I used to drink about 8 glasses a day until I recently heard about the latest research findings showing we only need about half the the recommended amount
Ash1141 Ash1141
About 8 a day

Almost none, but when I think about it I'll drink literally liters.

I aim for about 8 cups but I pretty much just drink until I run out of filtered water, then I need to filter more and let it cool, I've actually had waitresses comment on how much I drink when we go out to eat (about 4 glasses in one meal)

It is over 8 cups. I drink one nalgene at work and then when home it is a couple of glasses.
