Just wondering if you drink more water (fluids) with or without a straw? I seem to drink more with a straw. I think it's easier to suck it down. I try to force myself to see how much I can drink. drinker

I drink more with a straw. I like lots of ice in my water, so it's just less annoying with the straw. lol

I totally drink more water WITHOUT a straw.
Straws don't work well with troughs.

I don't like ice in my water, so I go no straw. No ice-jam to break loose and and send water all over my face & shirt.

Definitely more with a straw.

Lots more with one. I find myself getting distracted and chugging half a bottle without noticing, lol

I don't use a straw..Just the typical 16.9 bottles or the liter bottle of smart water (which i typically fill up with tap water). i drink more without it. I think it's a personal preference.

I say without a straw- and I've noticed I drink more from a large clear bottle versus any other option.

With straw and ice. I tend to refill more often.

Definitely with a straw. But my other trick is to keep one of those little 10 oz disposable cups right next to my water dispenser. I will fill up one of those and just chug it. I can do 2 or 3 like that back to back 2-3 times a day and get through most of my required water. Then I keep one of those plastic tumblers with the lid and straw on my desk and I sip on it throughout the day. By the end of the day, I have usually drank 80 - 90 ounce of water (10-11 glasses).

Drinking through a straw will give you wrinkles around your mouth (like a smoker).

I prefer to use my straws for other purposes. smokin

I drink much more without, but I wonder if it takes more effort to drink with a straw. Hey, if its a bigger burn I'm all for it drinker

I found out I drink a lot more with a straw because I can sit there and sip at it all day or just leave my water bottle open.

I used to think straw (I keep a bendy straw in my watter thermos thingy) but lately I'm finding when I'm TRYING to drinking more water, I pour it out in a cup and can drink it faster.

It goes the same with bottled water. I drink it faster if it's in a cup.
