UniquelyMe, I really need to drink more water. I drink a lot of tea, but I'm not so good about water. How'd you first get in the habit of increasing your water intake?

I like this question because I was not strong in this area for years.  Water is so important but every time I drank it I was reminded of my childhood and how it was used to induce vomiting to bring up unpleasant fluids.  Thus I detested water- Ok truth be told I hated it!  It's not until I got married and watched my husband and step-son consume water like they were in a desert.  They noticed the reverse with me and said that's not good--you need to flush your kidneys   So I started a journey and I mean it was a journey.  I put on my electronic calendar a daily reminder to drink one 8 oz cup of water in the am and in the pm.  I couldn't do it without adding lemon to it or fruit.  Eventually I was able to get it up to 16 oz in the am and 16oz in the pm.  I did this until I could increase my intake.  I still struggle at times especially when its cold weather (for obvious reasons) but my body feels better, my skin looks great and my hair and nails have grown beyond what I could imagine.  Water does a body goooooood!
