Does anyone actually drink 8 glasses of water a day?

I've been worried that I could be a little bit dehydrated lately, so I was wondering if anyone actually does this? I certainly don't lol

Update:

I drink a lot of soda (sugar free) every day, I'm guessing it doesn't count towards hydration though..

Update 2:

Just because I said I drink sugar free soda a lot it doesnt mean I have a bad diet. I eat lots of fruit, veg, meat etc, plus I’ve been doing this half my life and never suffered any problems, so please dont judge from what you see!

    I sure don't.  The only water I drink is in my coffee.  And I'm 86 years old.

  • it is good if you drink 8 glasses water, I drink 8 glasses every day,,

    Depends on the weather.  If it's hot and or im exercising I can easily drink two litres or more. Diet soda is fluid but it usually contains chemicals the body doesn't need or use. It's a habit that can be changed if you want to.

    I drink 24 a day but also drink 24 cups of coffee minimum, 18 shots, 10 beers, 11 rums, 16 fl oz of whiskey and a ton if rice in a cup each day. Sometimes sweet tea, too.

    I don't keep track but I probably drink close to 8 glasses a day..

    I had a kidney stone 7 years ago and do NOT want that ever again.

    BTW, soda is terrible for hydration and the "fizz" comes from phosphoric acid. Yes, acid. Think about that.

    I have maybe 3 glasses,  but I do have many cups of tea, so it could work out as more.

    You need the equivalent of about 8 glasses of liquid per day. Your normal food can supply a large amount of the liquid you need to stay properly hydrated. 

    But 8 glasses is only about 2 quarts, and isn't really all that much. A glass is about 4 mouthfuls. A mouthful is about 50 ml. So, a better count would be about two mouthfuls of liquid an hour, and you'd probably do well with one mouthful an hour

    Close enough.  A glass of water is only 8 ounces. I drink about 2 tumblers of coffee with milk. That’s about 24 ounces total. Then I drink about 2 cans of sparkling water or soda. So that’s another 3 glasses. Then I’ll drink about 1 or 2 glasses when I wake up in the middle of yet night.

    I usually go thru close to a gallon of iced tea a day, but it's 135 outside RIGHT NOW and the humidity is -8-.
