    Pretty easy question. In the last two months I've found myself drinking a lot of water and it's really been helping me. I don't get as tired and have pretty much gotten rid of all those mild dehydration headaches I would get. I take a 600 ml bottle of water with me to uni and go through about 3 bottles of it in a day. So overall I'd say I drink around 2 litres (that's about 0.44 gallons) a day. What about you?

    I've gone through periods of drinking plenty of water a day to none. I'm currently in a "not drinking nearly enough" spell :(

    I drink a lot of water, I can drink about 5 1L. bottles at work and then come home and drink a giant glass of it. I drink more then anyone I know and people are always amazed with it. I'm a big guy so that might be something, but I'm always tired so it's not helping me there.

    When I was in school I drank a lot of water. But nowdays it's like aw fuck, take a sip. It's not like i'm making a trip across the Sahara. And lately I've been craving sprite, I don't know why I just am.

    Don't know how much of it I drink, but it's usually a 750ml bottle during work and a few glasses at night.

    Not nearly enough. I keep hydrated through coffee, fruit juice, gatorade, soda, and tea. Once and a while I'll have a glass of water, but I should really drink more than that.

    Not sure how much exactly, but I have at least 4-6 cups a day.

    I drink about 4 liters a day at work most days and then a liter or so at home. I pretty much only drink water...unless i'm mixing with alcohol.

    the unfortunate thing is that most of those are diuretics because of the caffeine. I try to drink about a gallon a day.

    Drinking more or less water doesn't change my condition at all. 6 months ago I was on a diet and lost more than 40lbs. Thanks to stress and depression I've regained all of that and now I'm an insomniac too.
    But when I was doing the diet, I really didn't drink that much water. I'd take 600ml at the gym to prevent dehydration. I felt great because of the exercises and good eating.

    I don't know. Tons. We have water coolers at work, and properly filtered water is simply delicious.

    Ever since I had the joy of having a kidney stone, I have been drinking probably a half gallon a day.

    I think it's the chilled water coolers that did it for me. It means I can go for a bit of a walk away from my desk to get a refill. Plus, the water is nice and cold.

    I just started drinking a bottle a day of flavored water about a week ago.

    Properly-filtered water just has a sweetness to it that I love.
    If my work didn't have a cooler, I'd bring in my Brita.

    I've tried those flavoured waters, but they're all crap except for that one made by the yogurt company. All the other ones add sweetener, COMPLETELY missing the point.

    I drink coffee and soda all day.

    Probably part of the reason I always feel like shit.
