Is drinking water with ice cubes bad? my cousin said its unhealthy because it shocks your system. I am always drinking ice water and I don't feel bad

Ice water

Wrist_pain
The bigger problem is where the ice cubes come from. If they are home made you at least know the source of the water, but if you purchase them you dont know,whether is contaminated or not

is drinking a gallon and half of water a day bad for you?

Water

Diabetes
You should drink adequate water that is needed to quench your thirst. Drinking more than what you needed can certainly put your health in jeopardy including low sodium which potentially could cause seizure. However if you drinking that much water to quench your thirst on a daily basis, then you shoud get an evaluation, It can be a form of diabetes (mellitus or insipidus)

Help please! Is drinking a gallon of water a day bad?

Probably OK

Micturition
A gallon a day is probably more than what you need if you are not exercising vigorously or sweating a lot. However if you are feeling well otherwise, there is no harm done. Be sure that you don't have any health conditions which may cause you to have excessive thirst (diabetes is just one example) and urination.

Is going to bathroom on average 8 times a day bad for a female.I drink about 2-4 cups of water a day but on rare days it's 5-6.I don't go at night. ?

Likely ok

Open-uri20130206-17914-yia08g
While diabetes, urinary tract infections & some other illnesses can cause frequent urination, your urinary patterns sound normal. Vit C & soda can increase urinary frequency as well. If you're having pain, or don't feel like you're fully emptying your bladder, or if you're still concerned, please see your PCP. You do need to try & increase your water intake to about 8 glasses per day.

Is it bad to drink 3 liters of water a day?

It depends

Kidney
If you live here in Arizona and work outdoors in the summer, the 3L may not be enough. Other areas of the country it might be a bit much. If you have normal kidney function you may just spend more time in the rest room,

Im always dehydrated.My dr puts an iv in me every couple of months when it gets really bad.I drink 3 liters of water a day.What cant i do to fix this?

Stop with water..

Electrolytes
The amount of water you drink is actually detrimental to anyones health. Stop drinking so much because you are washing away all of the electrolytes in you body. Instead of water...try drinks like Gatorade and try not to drink so much. See if that helps the thirst and avoid caffein. It is a diuretic.

Is 2-5 lite beers every single day that bad for my liver or overall health? I do also drink at least a gallon of water a day and zero caffene

YES

Yes it is. If you are not addicted to the alcohol you may be habituated. I would see my MD and try to cut back the alcohol or seek help to do so.
