    During the WINTER months I average drinking between SIX and TEN 12 oz bottles of water every day of the week..

    But during the hot SUMMER months I average between TEN and FIFTEEN 12 oz bottles every day..

    And in addition to the water I drink each day, I also drink two 20 oz cups of hot tea and two 20 oz glasses of ice tea per day and one can of soda pop.

    I also drink a minimum of three beers per week as prescribed by my doctor.. Yes, I'm serious....
    beer helps prevents dehydration and my doctor told me to drink one every day, but I cheat and only drink one about every other day or so..

    Salt is important also... so I average a couple of handfuls of salty snacks each day.... like peanuts or chips, etc,... in addition to my two** regular meals each day.

    ** I only eat breakfast and dinner, never lunch..

    Whats your daily intake of liquids during the hot summertime ?

    And what do you do with the ten minutes a day that your not standing over the pot.
    About two big cups of coffee in the morning and maybe two to three bottles of water and a pop or two plus maybe a tea or two during the day.
    OH must be a good Doc as beer is Diuretic as is coffee.

    Dang! I was feeling guilty! Not any more! :)

    I generally get 3 or 4 8-oz bottles/glasses of water. A cup of coffee starts the morning; probably 12-oz. Maybe a cup in the afternoon. Generally I have an 8 oz glass of V8 fruit/vegetable juice during the day.

    My nightly routine is an oz. of bourbon with about 2 oz of water. My "medicine" for nightime.

    Winter makes me slow down on the water for some reason. :clown:

    PS. I wrote this without looking back at John's post. Now I'll see how it compares. ;)

    Lots of coffee morning, and sometimes evening. Diet coke about two or three a day. A small amount of water (filtered or bottled) but just to take meds with. Wife hounds me all the time about drinking at least 4-8 big 8 oz glasses of water each day, but if I did that, I'd just have to move the PC into the B ROOM and spend the day there. ;)

    Lets see, two to four cups of coffee in the morning. Half a 20oz bottle of water with pills. Than a can of pepsi one with lunch and dinner. Two 20oz bottles of water during the day. At least one 20oz bottle during the evening as well as half a bottle with pills at bedtime. And usually a bottle or two of beer at night. So thats

    OK here is what I have. 2 cups of coffee morning, (if outside looking for a tree) if inside looking for a bath room, no breakfast unless it on the weekend. During the day water or coke cola. At supper, water with lemon and sweet and low (lemon aid) or tea. Before bed maybe a beer or bluebell ice cream with a little chocolate syrup just to settle my nerves :laugh: that what I tell the DW anyway:approve: Now lets al get together and have a beer break

    Really depends on how much scotch I drink as to how much water I drink.

    I drink a glass of iced tea in the AM with breakfast and may drink a cup or two of coffee at work depending on the meetings I am in. I drink an occasional Diet Pepsi and once in a while I will have a beer or two or three...I mostly drink water. I carry a case around in the back seat of my car and will easily go through it in a week during the school year (I often travel to 2 or more schools a day). I drink 2-4 16 oz bottles a day at work and 2 more on my round trip to/from work. If I am sitting out on my boat or around my camp site, I average a 16 oz bottle every 60 - 90 minutes.
