Oh yes... the drink, the essence of life...



Assume what you may, but when have you last had a sip...

As the audience reaches for their beverage... whatever it may be...

I've heard 3 days is the limit of the human body...

I personally can only guess... i've went 6-12 hours without drinking

which would be work, or sleep... and i always take water to sleep

Though i have a constant thirst for liquid...

Either way three days seems about right...

I'm not sure how long I've gone without drinking water. I don't really mind not eating for about a day, but I get thirsty easily. I keep a 32 oz. cup next to my bed at night and probably fill it at least once in the middle of the night. BTW, buy one. Insulated so it stays cold, doesn't sweat, has a lid with straw so crap doesn't get in it. The one I have is called Reduce Cold-1. You can probably find the same thing cheaper. Since you drink a ton of water at night too, I hope you've got something like this, also you might have diabetes or something. I've been like this since I was a kid, always thirsty at night (no diabetes).

Googled it, apparently people have lived 8-10 days without water. I do not envy them.

Almost always keep a fair amount of water in my truck (and that's for around town stuff). Need to get one of those Sawyer water filters to throw in too. When I go camping I usually bring about 2x the amount of water I think we'll need.

Glad my tap water tastes good here. I should probably get a filter, but meh.

My guess is the majority of ATS drinks too much (booze), the rest smoke too much, the rest are crazy, and then maybe some normal people fool around until they start drinking (booze), smoking or being crazy.

ETA: Booze.

I would use RO water with added minerals for Discus fish... But I would not advise drinking it.

this sounds like a conspiracy!

I've heard this one... it sucks the minerals out of your body.. ya?

Been drinking RO for years... its wonderful crystal purity....

I don't consume any alcohol at all so probably forever. I just hate the taste and a relative of mine died because of alcoholism. Though i'm addicted to ice coffee and i even enjoy a cup of it in the winter season.

However since it turned out that my mothers cancer is untreatable and she went from living a few more years to die at any second now i'm inclined to get absolutely hammered at her funeral. Sounds weird but i always wanted to try the lemon juice in the eye trick from Stephen Kings book It.

It's a #ing miracle that i don't feel the urge to do any drugs at all to be quite honest.

I drink about 6-7 bottles of water each day. That doesn't include other drinks such as coffee. I've never needed to have any water on my night stand. This morning is the last time I've had a sip.

I don't drink alcohol...ever.

Thanks,
Blend57

I have the occasional social drink. I might get a mixed drink with my dinner once in a blue moon (say on the order of once every six months), and we've been known to indulge in the occasional six pack of hard cider around the house, that gets shared out over a month or so. I also end up finishing off the last couple ounces when we cook with a stout or ale because I'll tolerate it, not because I like it.

As for drinking other stuff ...

Ever since I got rotated onto my current migraine meds, I never have either tea or water very far from my hands. I may not drink at high rates, but I go through no less than 2 or 3 32 oz cups every day and usually more. When I want something sweet, I'll add in about 20 oz of fruit juice, and I might grab a latte on my way to work in the morning, but that just makes me thirsty.

See, one of the potential side effects of my meds is kidney stones, so I keep my system flushed out.

I imagine it does taste good.

I also imagine there are no major disadvantages to health, however there are no advantages that I can see.

The result of RO water is a demineralised (no good stuff left) acidic water. I will perhaps try drinking some myself.

If you are really into this pure water stuff perhaps try RO water which has been UV treated. Not only will you be able to shop using acronyms it is one step up on the cleanliness scale.

For whatever reason, I've always only drank water.

I don't drink any alcohol at all, never cared for the taste, the effects of it took too long to take affect and it isn't a feeling I find enjoyable. Primarily, I suspect, is that people get into it for social reasons, and I'm not in the least bit social.

I also don't drink soda, unless for some reason it came with a meal. I don't dislike it, I just don't find a need to go out and buy it.

I absolutely hate coffee.

I find that all of those things are also just a waste of money, for my sake at least. Sure, if you enjoy them it makes sense to spend the extra on getting them. But for me, it's just a waste. I'll just take water thank you.

That being said, haven't gone with the following for:

Alcohol: 10 years
Soda: a few years
Coffee: had half a cup because someone bought it for me without asking 2 months ago. Had half a cup 12 years ago. That's all the coffee I've ever drank
Water: 1.5 days
