good recommendations everyone! I might try some frozen fruit ice cubes! We shall see.

You know what the funny thing is? It's not even that I don't "like" water in the sense that I dislike the way it tastes. Rather, I just don't feel compelled to drink it. I suppose this is a plus, because it means that just sipping water doesn't feel like torture - bottled, tap, filtered, they all taste like nothing to me... but if I have a glass in front of me and try to drink a bunch at once it feels like I'm force feeding myself liquid nothingness... and then I feel all sloshy inside.

carrying a bottle with me is a good idea as well - if I can sip it in little bits, maybe it won't be so hard to drink a normal amount. I just need to remember not to leave the bottle in the car when I park to go into class!

There isn't anything magical about water from a cup instead of water from a berry. You probably don't need to drink 8 glasses a day, another 2-4 could be plenty if it stops your negative symptoms.

I do not like plain water, I can hardly drink it. Something about the combination of the texture and the "flavor" if you can call it I just find icky.

I do like carbonated, unsweetened water like H2O! or other brands. Or if I'm really hard up I add a few squirts of lemon juice to water or drink iced tea instead.

I don't drink water. At all. Unless I like, take a long walk on a hot day. Then I'll grab a bottle BUT I have to add a Crystal Light packet to it. Would rather die of thirst than drink plain water lol.

Or I'll do these guys from Target:

I'm a big fan of drinking pop, so the carbonated flavored waters end up being just as satisfying to me.

Crushed mint and sliced cucumber is my favorite water additive.

I've been trying to switch from cokes to water and I definitely need an interim drink with flavor. I drink tea a lot. I also drink a lot of lemon and/or orange/citrus water. It's easy to make. I will also use frozen fruit for ice cubes sometimes. My favorite is frozen raspberries. Mint and cucumber water is another. I'm not a big fan of the cucumber but I like the mint.

I do drink the crystal lights sometimes but they're kind of icky. My big downfall is lipton raspberry tea.

Also I drink water room temperature most the time. It's easier for me to drink, I find.

Seltzer! I'm not a water drinker and I have to really try every day to get enough liquids. La Croix is amazing- bubbly and flavored with no calories or sweeteners.

the peeing every 5 minutes isnt normal, and once you ARE hydrated properly, it will stop. i hate water as well, but i adore coffee so i drink a lot of tea and coffee, and then this stuff http://www.theyummylife.com/Flavored_Water

when they say 8 glasses of water, they mean 8 ounce glasses. the little ones. so it actually amounts to, if youre using a big glass or water bottle, 3 or 4. doesnt seem so hard to drink 3 soda-bottles-worth of water a day, yes? even 2 would be better than where you are at, now

also get a brita.
