The first time they released me from the hospital. 

But I had a temporary ileo at the time.  I wasn't home a day and boom!  Back in for two week hospital stay. 

That taught me quick to drink alot. All the time. 

No. It's not due from age. It due to not drinking enough water! 

By the time you notice you may be dehydrated it's too late. 

I drank six to seven bottles of water in an 8 hour shift at work. I worked outside in pretty hot weather. 

Now. I just down a bottle of water even if I don't think I need it. I do.  Just plain water.  

Passing out in a subway would not be fun. Ouch.

P. S. 

Thanks for the reminder..... Just drank a bottle. 

LOL! You are soo funny! I love it hahaa! And yeah, I drink about 2 gallons a day. Always drink before your thirsty
