    I would drink 2 - 2.5 L per day in winter...and 3-4 L per day in warmer months.
    It's all I drink. I have a glass of coconut water a day, but otherwise it's water.
    Even if I do have another drink, say a hot chocolate in winter or a green smoothie in warmer months, it needs to be accompanied with water.
    I can chug it down. I always have water on me, I can't leave home without my bottle of water, or else I'll have to buy a bottle when out. But, I can chug down 3 or 4 glasses of water one after the other if I'm thirsty.
    According to the 30ml/kg thing I drink a fair bit more than I 'should' but as I do vigorous exercise 5 days a week that causes me to sweat a lot I also need to replace what I lose.
    On the plus side, I only ever moisturise or use lip balm if we have strong winds that is harsh on the skin. I don't need to otherwise, and I even work in an environment where I use hand sanitiser constantly all day, which everyone else complains about how dry their hands are and how they're constantly moisturising them.

    When I first get up I drink a glass of lemon sole water (Himalayan pink salt dissolved in water) on an empty tummy. I probably only drink another cup throughout the day sometimes 2. I definitely need to drink more though. Should install an app to send me a reminder to chug some water. Pretty sad when it has to come to that that. I am however a good girl who doesn't drink soft drink, tea or coffee.

    Not enough. Maybe 1 litre a day. I need to add another half litre but is hard to actually drink that much! I can't physically fit it in

    2-3 litres + decaf tea and coffee. I love water and drink constantly. I also drink a large glass during the night i wake up a lot and always have a drink. I wonder how dehydrated some people must be stinking such small amounts would not be enough to keep your body healthy

    Slightly ot but I have actually looked for an app to do just that, and I had to search for one that DOESN'T require access to your images. Now why a water tracking app would want access to your photos I can only imagine. I eventually found one that requires no permissions, Carbodroid.

    I drink between one and two litres per day, not including herbal tea. That's how much *I* need...I'm a strong believer in listening to your body in regards to water consumption. If you feel like you physically can't have any more, then you probably don't need it. Everyone has different needs, and it also depends on the time of year, activity etc. Plus don't forget that you also get water out of the food you eat (especially fruit + veg). I hate when people say that you need to have x amount of water per day

    That's probably true @Witwicky, however I'm trying to lose weight atm, and I'm eating within my calories, but the weight isn't coming off in any hurry. I thought maybe a bit more water might help. I do feel I'm a bit dehydrated. I think if I push it for a few days my body might get used to the extra volume. It's frustrating though, I keep forgetting!

    At home I aim for about 2.5-3 litres. In winter I drink hot water and freshly squeezed lemon juice, in summer I drink it cold. At work 2 days a week I probably drink half of that.

    Slightly off from the OP, but as Shani mentioned, it's a myth that you need to drink some specific amount.

    If you think that you feel better drinking more, then go for it.... but our bodies are extremely well evolved. They tell us when we need water - it's called thirst.

    A good article by Dr Karl about the 2L a day thing being a myth:
