Drinking more water means more...you know.....peeing.

I was not very good at drinking enough water before.  I'm now allowing myself coffee in the morning (because I'm not giving that up) and then drink water for the rest of the day.  Man!  Now I have to pee all the damn time.  I wake up during the middle of the night to go potty....sometimes a couple of times.  And, when I go, it's like I've been holding it for hours.    Sheesh! :)

For those that are avid water drinkers.....does it ever go back to normal or is this my new normal?

 it eventually gets back to normal...it was like a month when I didn't feel like I was using the bathroom 24/7.

I think it may be your new normal! I drink 62ozs of water a day plus I drink Green tea, Oolong tea, both organic all sorts of tea. I've read if you don't add anything to your tea & drink it plain it is also considered part of yor water for the day & I drink @ least 8-10 cups of tea a day. I work as a Home health aide & one of my clients told me that one day I would float away because I drink so much water & tea LOL!

I've been drinking coffee in the morning and water the rest of the time mostly, and yeah- I have to pee a lot...it has gotten slightly better since I hit 60 oz a day- but I still don't want to drink more because I already pee a lot.

I asked about this too - wondering how people who work deal with it! *luckily, I stay home so it's not a problem really, but it IS annoying!

I read I should drink half my weight in ozs of water everyday which is a lot of water. So today I drank 9 bottles of water and I felt like I had to pee every 5 minutes. I hope it gets better.

I've been drinking 96oz of water a day for the last year and I feel like I live in the bathroom on most days

Your body will normalize!  I drink at least 100 oz of water a day, and I do fine.  But I know if I've been bad about it, then catch back up, I'm peeing like crazy.

once you get used to it, it might slow down.
