What can I do? I don't like drinking water?!

Question: What can I do? I don't like drinking water?
This has been a problem for me for sooo long. I've never liked drinking water that much, but I know that I used to anyways. I would drink water bottles and such when I was younger but now, at 14, the thought of even drinking water makes me gag. I honestly don't know why, maybe because of the fact that it doesn't have a taste.. or the texture or something.. I'm not sure. I've tried switching to flavoured water and it still doesn't appeal to me. Though, I like it a LOT more than water itself.. is flavoured water okay? Will it still clean out the toxins in my body and keep me healthy? Lately I've been worried about my acne and that I'm gaining weight.. I just think that me only drinking iced-tea and milk throughout the day is what's causing it. I don't think going to talk to a doctor about it would help at all.. I was in the hospital when I was younger already. Please help :S!


You're getting lots of water from sources that you probably haven't even thought about. You can put lemon juice or lime juice, or both, into your water. Or you could drink any type of tea. Orange juice has lots of water in it too. Sugarfree Koolaid is mainly water. Watermelon is loaded with water. You get water from just about anything. It's even in your vegetables and fruits. Prepared rice and mashed potatoes have water in them. So, you don't have to just drink straight water all the time.

Plain iced tea (no sugar) is a perfectly fine substitute for water according to my doc, as long as you brew it yourself and not buy bottled iced teas. I drink it all day long, get my fluid, and don't break out at all. Acne can be caused by stress, hormones, and not taking off cosmetics, but not by drinking plain iced tea.

relax i never drink water and im fine lol i dont think thats why u getting acne or becoming fat i just drink juice, orange juice a lot.

Mix your water with crystal light. They have some good flavors and you can buy the ones with 0 calories.
