I like juice too. I can't start my day without half a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice - I figure half a glass a day won't kill me, especially since I don't like fruit.

Ice water freak here. I love me a huge glass of ice water any time of the day. Being in Arizona makes it even more enjoyable

I enjoy pop, juice, coffee and tea, but can also enjoy water without anything added.

I drink it all the time and have for many years now. I can honestly say other than a drop of OJ in the AM, and a cup of Diet Cranberry Pomegranite juice each day I drink nothing but water. I never get a soda with a sandwich or a meal when Im out somewhere. I always ask for water.

I drink about 2 gallons a day.
I really do.

Starts as soon as I wake up. One huge glass. Ends right before I go to bed.
No, I don't have to wake up in the middle of the night to pee either.

Only if I'm really dying of thirst (really hot days or excersing & craving it) that I love water (icy cold ofcourse), I also love bubbles in mine, w/a slice a lemon, I know its good for you, but tell my brain that....but I wouldn't waste money on that water enhancer....what a rip!

I drink water becaus eit is better for you, then when I do have a glass of soda, it actually feels heavy, and cant finish the whole glass, so I guess that is a good thing.

but I only like room temperature water, I do not cold water.

Someone emailed me this recently - interesting but not sure if it's true -

Drinking Water
(A Dr. Oz item of interest)

Another little tidbit that was news to me. I always knew one should drink a lot of water,

but who knew that the timing affected things?
Drinking water at the correct timemaximizes its effectivenesson the Human body:

2 glasses of water after waking up helps activate internal organs
1 glass of water 30 minutes before a meal - helps digestion

1 glass of water before taking a bath - helps lower blood pressure

1 glass of water before going to bed - avoids stroke or heart attack
