Omg I never ever drink water.
It’s awful
Since I was a toddler my mom would have to force feed me teaspoons of water

And pls don’t tell me to try adding lemon or cucumber. That’s even worse for me

I’ve really gotta start though. Maybe seeing everyone’s responses will give me a kick start



Would adding pieces of fruit be better? I’be seen people add pieces of strawberries, oranges, etc.

I probably do 5-6 but have been trying to do more. I just feel like I’m in the bathroom all day. Soooo annoying.

Have you tried adding water enhancer? There are a ton of different brands and flavors, powdered and liquid. Try adding just a few drops (they're concentrated so super sweet) and ice, then adjust the flavor to your liking. Or you could use juice or lemonade. Then "train" your tastebuds to adapt to the taste of plain water by lessening the ratio over time until it's just water.

Have you tried Hint water?
It's flavored- but no sugar or artificial sweetner- it's not sweet- just essence.
It's actually very good



I tried Hint water once and it freaked me out Chat Icon Chat Icon I like water. I like fruit flavored beverages. I like plain and flavored seltzer. Hint water is nothing like any of those lol I couldn't get into the fact that it had flavor but no bubbles lol I also hate when flavored seltzer (or any seltzer) goes flat.

Thanks but no
I don’t like powdered or liquid stuff
I just gotta do it. Ice and a straw.
I find when I drink with a straw I drink more so hopefully I can just get over my childish “I don’t like it “ mentality and just do it

Yeah, I used to hate that it didn't have a taste when I was younger, but now I don't mind it and actually like it. Just can't ever remember to drink more. It needs to have lots of ice though lol. You can do it! Get a pretty straw bottle to entice yourself to use it.

Lol. See I was looking for an alternative to flavored seltzers because the carbonation was too much for me but I have a hard time with plain, flat water. So this was just what I was looking for

Yeah it's probably better for you in the long run than all the carbonation in seltzer. DH loves hint water. I tried and failed Chat Icon

Oh no! Drink lots of cranberry juice too. Between a ton of water and cranberry juice you should flush it out.

Feel better!

Lol! What are the chances!!! UTIs are annoying though. Yes, the water will def help and peeing as soon as u feel the need will help too. If u’re not taking anything yet, u might want to look into taking cranberry capsules (slow release), and also d-mannose added to water throughout the day have definitely helped me before. I read that u’re eating dried cranberries, not bad just be careful with the amount of sugar though cause bacteria loves sugar.
