if there's somebody who thinks filtered water is gross though then idk wtf

yea this is what i mean

i used to do taste and odor water quality research so i totally get you can have tap water that literally tastes like dirt sometimes (even though i think the gag inducement over such is overstated whatever) but there are totally folks out there who talk about even clean water as being gross and i just donít get it like itís a biological need, yíall

its because bottled water companies have spent 40 years lying to people about how tap water in unsafe

but then youíd expect those people to be fine with bottled. some are of course. many wonít even drink that.

worst water i ever had was when a shitload of zebra mussels died in an intake pipe for the treatment plant.

it was treated and safe to drink, but smelled like rotting shelfish. only happened for a few days when they were cleaning an intake pipe. they drained it, cleaned out some parts of it, but there were other parts with big zebra mussel colonies they couldnít get to that died and made it smell bad.

I dont think itís gross by any stretch but the thing is I have no internal drive to drink it, not until Iím mega thirsty that is

I think I spent a decent part of my youth destroying all my natural relationships with food and drink.

now all that is left is hot chip and red bull

bro whatís hot

there are several limestone springs around the farm but I canít be bothered tapping those.

when I was a kid my dad blew one of them up with tnt or something and then just syphoned out the delicious water from the crater it created with about a 4km hose to our house and that was our water supply for 15 years. I learnt all my problem solving skills from my dad. when faced with an important problem, blow it up.

we blew/dug one of ours into a pond for extra food. which then magically got populated by mussels! one of my profs stewed on it and suggested that birds mightíve dropped them in when stopping by

is 1g of caffeine each day good for you? asking for a friend

i know you already know but about half that is pretty much a ok to drink on a daily basis forever. itís only three or four cups of coffee.

you should try and get yourself to like coffee tbh on a cost analysis alone

also if you just like sweet bubble why not buy like generic diet zealand fizz and a bottle of caffeine pills

i prolly drink two to four litres of water a day on top of all the other beverages (which mostly just amounts to coffee, beer, and occasionally milk, maybe an energy drink a month), feels great but i pretty much pee constantly lol

theres gotta be something to do with reward pathways or some bullshit. at times of misery I perpetuate the problem.

I think these reward pathways are strong but I am going to fight them with watuary

probably, but physiological effects will be sated either way which is the harder part to deal with

what do you mean ?

i have to imagine anything in your brain that is driving these pleasure seeking behaviours would also be satisfied by generic diet soda and caffeine pills is my point while being astonishingly cheaper. and if you switch to fizzy water instead not even too bad for you

echinopsis posted:

its why you don't just stop cigarette smoking with nicotine patches, there's an entire world of associated behaviors the reward pathway has a grip on, and if you've spent years developing networks of rewards and reward seeking behavior, that behavior ends up driven by the same part of your brain that drove our ancestors to enjoy red meat and sex

yes it's instead why you slowly taper down your nicotine addiction by using an e-cigarette and tamping down on the percentages before finding something else to do with your oral fixation once you're down to 0% nicotine (or just vape for flavour i don't care)

this is why i was suggesting finding replacements that let you recreate all the other parts of your habit so that you can modify them one bit at a time

I started this new drug empagliflozin and one of its side effects is thirst and lo and behold when I am actually thirsty I don't want redbull, which is good.

I think this will make things better/good

you should keep a running total of how much you drink during watuary
