Poll: Do you drink warm water? (155 votes)

Yes 12%
No 59%
Warm or cold works for me 28%

Just curious if people drink warm or room temperature water. I tend to always have ice in my cup of water, and when it hits room temperature I just stop drinking it. Only time I don't care is if it is bottled water, but I just find it weird people just drink warm tap water and they don't mind.

Only when there's no other option, which is rare.

Ice cold or not at all.

#3 Posted by davidwitten22 (1708 posts) -

Prefer it cold of course, but at times I have drank some warm ass water.

Hot water is good sometimes too.

It's whatever. Water is water.

#5 Posted by DoctorWelch (2763 posts) -

I have no idea why, but I used to prefer warm water to cold water. I know, crazy right? Now I always put ice in that shit, but I'll drink it after the ice melts and it gets pretty warm.

I'd rather not. :(

Only assholes like warm water. You're not an asshole right?

It used to bother me but now it doesn't because the outcome is the same. I am no longer thirsty after drinking warm or cold water and that's all that matters. By warm I mean room temperature... not heated.

What the hell what monsters do this sort of stuff?

#11 Posted by pyromagnestir (4349 posts) -

Yes. Sometimes I want cold water, sometimes I want that shit room temperature.

Is there some sort of 'Most Trivial Thread' contest going on that I'm not aware of?

#13 Posted by falserelic (5407 posts) -

Ugh..if I can't get cold water, but warm water was the only thing available and If I was thirsty. Then I got no choice other then that I prefer cold water.

I can drink warm, just rather drink cold.

No. I'm not a monster.

Cold water > warm water > hot water.

#17 Edited by Coafi (1494 posts) -

I drink room-temperature water.

#18 Posted by Colourful_Hippie (4635 posts) -

I always have to have it cold. I'll only settle for room temperature if I'm dying of thirst and ice is unavailable.

#19 Posted by TheManWithNoPlan (6167 posts) -

I prefer Ice Cold beverages.

Preferably cold but I'll drink it how I can get it as long as it's clean. Water is good for you.

#21 Posted by Tireyo (6453 posts) -

I don't think that warm water is even healthy. I know that if you leave a drink in the car for over an hour, then it's no good anymore.

#22 Edited by Chaser324 (6859 posts) -

I prefer cold water, but I have no problem just cracking open a room temperature bottle of water.

#23 Posted by Hunter5024 (6143 posts) -

When I drink water I like to chug it, and its difficult to chug things when they're cold. So I like my water room temperature, but no warmer than that. So yes I drink warm water from the tap.

#24 Posted by crimsinf (150 posts) -

I prefer my bottled water to be room temperature. If I'm drinking from a glass, I like it to be a little colder, but at restaurants I order my water with no ice.

Seen. It just glides easier down the throat when it's warm.

#26 Edited by Strife777 (1635 posts) -

No, but I also don't like my water cold unless I just did a whole lot of exercise or something. Otherwise, room temperature or a bit cooler.

Edit: Oh and for goodness' sake, don't you dare put ice in my beverage you animal.

#27 Posted by TyCobb (1977 posts) -

Sometimes I get thirsty when taking a shower.

#28 Posted by Apparatus_Unearth (3329 posts) -

Only if I really need water like at that exact second.

#29 Posted by TopSteer (682 posts) -

I drink water at room temperature but pretty much everything else like tea, soda, beer and liquor cold. It's gotten to the point now where I don't like cold water.

#30 Posted by Quarters (2009 posts) -

Room temperature tap water. Don't know if I would call it "warm". When I think warm, I think a few steps above hot. I don't especially enjoy ice cold water(but it's still fine). Even back when I drank soda, I didn't put ice or anything in it. It was always cold enough from the fridge.

#31 Posted by InfiniteGeass (2063 posts) -

Burning hot. I like to feel like my throat is on fire.

#32 Posted by MentalDisruption (1692 posts) -

I drink either. Its one of the reasons I like water during the summer so much. While pop and other drinks drive me crazy when they're warm, water doesn't bug me.

#33 Edited by Castiel (2807 posts) -

Well would tea or coffee count as warm water? Or are we just talking water water? Also why all these threads about water all of a sudden?

#34 Posted by thebunnyhunter (1496 posts) -

I really like slightly below room temperature water...i cant really stand ice cold water.

#35 Posted by Zacagawea (1631 posts) -

I can only drink room temperature water

#36 Edited by Ravenlight (8011 posts) -

Sometimes. Usually when mistaking it for cold water.

Sometimes. Water's wet regardless of temperature.

Fun fact: at one of the places I stayed when I was in India, they had 2 different things of bottled water in the lobby, room temp and refrigerated. The cold water was for the tourists - locals preferred the warm because (as I was told) they thought colder water might make you more likely to get sick. At the very least, they weren't as accustomed to cold water they way all the westerners were so it wasn't as important to them, despite it being Balls Hot outside.

#40 Posted by triple07 (1205 posts) -

I'll drink it room temp if its around and I don't want to waste it or there is nothing else but I prefer it cold. Pretty much any water above room temp (~70) is super gross to me.

#41 Posted by GnomeonFire (838 posts) -

Not ice cold, but normal cold. Never warm.

#42 Posted by BabyChooChoo (5036 posts) -

Depends on the temperature of my surroundings. If I'm out in the blazing sun or something, give me cold water. If I'm just chillin at home or whatever, then I'll drink it warm or cold.

#43 Posted by Dimsey (968 posts) -

I'll drink whatevers there. Which is typically warm water.

#44 Posted by Fearbeard (841 posts) -

I'm in the not ice cold, but coolish camp. I don't want it warm like it's been sitting in a car in the sunlight for hours, but just out of the tap is prefect for me or if it's been sitting at room temperature for awhile that's fine as well.

#45 Posted by konig_kei (703 posts) -

I drink warm water when in sick but otherwise cold tap water, fuck bottled water, only douche bags drink that.

#46 Posted by Osaladin (2556 posts) -

I don't know about warm, but room temperature is fine. There is little else as refreshing an ice cold bottle of water on a hot day though.

#47 Edited by Canteu (2821 posts) -

Water is only room temperature for me when I've left a glass out overnight. That shit tastes awful, so no.
