    No, this certainly is not normal. One liter is a lot of water.
    And you don’t need this fluid anyway, because if you did, you wouldn’t have to wee that much.
    I never drink during the night. Still have to pee like a bull in the morning btw.

    I think it has become some kind of ritual to you and it is probably difficult to change. Is it a Chinese habit perhaps? When I got a severe cold in Taiwan all the Chinese advised me to drink loads of water to get rid of the cold. I actually did help. Or at least I think it did.

      Pee like a bull…!!!!!!! XD
      Sorry, that made me roflol a little, hadn’t heard that expression before. Beats the horse, definitely. :)

      It could be, most Chinese people I know all need to have lukewarm water too. “Cold? Room temperature? That’s… bad!” Or something. Ach, better to make sure right? Though it being nothing more than a habit sounds quite likely.

    I also drink quite extreme, and come out of bed to take few sips. Because this is a possible indicator for diabetis, I’ve had me tested on diabetis to rule out the possibility. Fortunately, I din’t have this illness. I think my thirst has something to do with a higher rate of metabolism (burning food) than normal.

      I’ve also been wondering if it was perhaps a kidney problem, but it’s only at night… hmm, still planning to get it checked one day though.
      I’m afraid a high metabolism couldn’t be the cause for me, boo. If only! XD

    glad you pointed out that was a water filter under the bed!!
    and yes, it’s normal- we lose at least a pint of water in sweat at night so you need to replace it!

      I don’t think a lot of people drink that much though! Yeah… a Brita filter is hard to recognise when drawn…
