We had this a few months ago I think..... I dont know if its good for you or not, but it stops me snacking on sweets and crisps. I also prefer it to sugary drinks.

All things in moderation, too much of anything is not good. Too much water intake can cause required salts etc to be flushed from the body.

You can drink extra water after imbibing alcohol as it compensates for the dehydrating effects of the alcohol. Flying also creates a dehydrating effect so it may be advisable to sip water during your journey, diluting it with a single malt nullifies the advantage.

And the moral of the story?

Stick to beer

First they say it's good to do & now they say it's not.

As for sticking to beer, thats a great idea Clapton is God.

Everything we eat, drink, smoke or do is bad for us - so I am with Clapton is God

Beer should be available on the NHS.

They used to say that you should not drink Tea. Now they say you should drink Tea as it is made with water and the Tea infused in the water is good for you.

I also heard if you spoil whisky by putting Lemonade in it, the bubbles carry the alcohol into the blood stream quicker and you fall over sooner!

I would imagine drinking 8 half pints of water instead of tea must be better for you.That would be at least 12 spoonfulls of sugar that you are not consuming every day.4,368 spoonfulls a year.I have also been told water helps your kidneys work better.Plus you will not eat as much as the water helps fill you.So you should end up slimmer and fitter and I think that I should have started taking it years ago.
