I used to really struggle with drinking water, too. I don't necessarily dislike it, but it is just easy to forget to drink all the time. I don't seem to be as forgetful when it is Diet Coke (my true love ;-)). So I started making myself guzzle a whole bottle of water before I was allowed to drink a soda. Diet Coke became the reward for drinking my water. In the end I drink A LOT more water and probably a lot less Diet Coke with this system. If nothing else I am VERY hydrated! Good Luck!
