this is a made up challenge to myself and anyone who wants to join in:

during january, from first second after midnight till it ends you can ONLY DRINK WATER I mean as far as drinks go

no :

alcohol
energy drinks
coffee
milk
soda water
soup
juice
coke zero


Iíve excluded soda water because spending no money is one of the reasons

things you are allowed :

ice


coz ice is literally cold water

I suspect this will have many benefits :

less calories coz of no alcohol
no alcohol may be good for you
no money on energy drinks or coffee
escape caffeine addiction
super smug sense of superiority over others that canít do this
not feeding into consumerism
no charities other than your own health


exceptions : you are dying from dysentery and need electrolytes to life, we donít need you dying just to prove a point
maybe if you live somewhere cold you can have soup but like as a meal not a cup of soap. right here itís middle of summer who the gently caress wants soup


Iím doing it. .... are you a bad enough dude??

you had me pretty much until soup.

soup is an all season food you nerd. holodnik or beef stew. hot or cold whatever the weather. its all good all the time!!

also i like beer but could agree to a soup + vodka excluded regime

*pinching area between eyes and staring at the floor*

I thought this was clear. soup is fine if it's a meal. but a cup of soup, like as a hot drink around the campfire? that is not ok.

Soricidus posted:

I need more details of how this works. is gravy forbidden? rare steak? juicy fruit? semen?

this is about replacing the drinks you would normally drink like a coke or a coffee. if you really drink semen to hydrate yourself, well, hell, let's allow it. drink all the jizz you can find

watuary is strict. theres no soda water for god drat sake, do you think bone broth is going to make the cut?


turn that boner broth into some meal, put some steak into it, and have it for lunch.





honestly are there people out there that are running a marathon and when offered water say *puff puff* "mind if" *puff* "If I" *puff* "have" *puff puff* "some of" *puff puff puff* "your tasty" *puff* "bone broth"

cool and fast fact :

water and ice coexist in equilibrium at 0 degrees until either all the ice has melted and only then will it get hotter. in this way ice acts as a buffer maintaining cool temerpatures

wow this is harder than i thought. never realised how much I rely on a flavoured drink to distract myself from my own existence. so often I feel that ďpullĒ or energy toward getting a drink or whatever. this is only during the day, the beer tug will start happening soon too

hopefully these die off

you can literally use vitamin c aka ascorbic acid to neutralise chlorine in water. itís legit, water treatment plants use it.

I ordered some lab grade stuff. itís cheap and safe and ya use like a pinch, works like magic

actually wanted to sell it from work but would have needed a food making licence

Agile Vector posted:

does mineral water or filtered water with a mineral filter count as only water? they can be less beige without being flavorful

oh lol some googling to answer if its more encouraging to drink starts off being 'drink tap water' so i guess that sort of makes sense unless your water is overly softened and purified at the tap without minerals

yeah itís all good. my personal reason for avoiding sofa water because I also wanted to avoid spending money on it

end of day 5 :

so far: have realised how often I want a flavoured drink as a comfort or a distraction
sleep: well of course it's better
money spent : much less
short term at expense of long term decisions made : much much less


gfs sleep has improved heaps, largely due to not needing caffeine heaps in morning. he doesnt drink anywhere as much alcohol as me but juice sometimes and decent few coffees in the mornign
