I know EXACTLY what you're going through. I find that as soon as I wake up and have my meal, I begin to drink. For me, a mini glass of ice cold water helps. My goal is to drink it before it gets warm. Also ice chips will help out tons!!!!!!!!!! What kind of water are you drinking? Certain waters out there don't quench my thirst, like Fiji, Aquafina, Dasani. I love the PUR water purifying system, along with Nestle Life water. They contain certain minerals that will quench your thirst. Also, I am having sugar free popsicles in between my sips. If I leave my home, I take a bottle with ICE water and as soon as it gets warm, I buy more ice. Good luck and keep your chin up.
