    Yes you can live till the time you keep on taking water through a drip which directly goes to your blood stream. But you will still need water to quench your thirst.

    I reckon...if you count juice, soda, coffee, and the like.  Can't remember the last time I had a glass of water as such.

    NO,it is not possible to live without drinking water.Body requires water,80% of the human body is made up of water.All the cellular and metabolic activities in our body require water.Even if you don't drink water directly, body extracts water from every food and fluid you intake.

    Live - NO.  Survive for a couple of days - Yes.  Live with water given from other sources outside of drinking straight water, yes.  I hope that helps.  Smile!

    Not at all, as water is the basic need of all living beings on our earth. I do not know about living beings on other planets

    Obviously you'll die without water.  If you don't directly drink it but consume other things with water in them, that obviously keeps you going.  Is it ideal?  No.

    Previous answers cover this well. . . you must take in water in some form to survive for more than a couple of days, but it may be contained in other beverages or even in foods.  It may even be in the form of an intravenous drip; this may be the case for comatose medical patients, for instance.

    But without water, you die.  Simple as that.

    What I'm curious about is, why do you ask?  Do you have something specific in mind?

    Water specifically yes. Water in general no.
    A person can go quite awhile without eating over a month isn't all that uncommon for fasting. But you will die after only about a week without sufficient liquid intake.
    Just remember that you get water in almost everything you eat or drink.
    As to the old adage that you need to drink 8 8oz glasses of water everyday that is pure BS. I would never get out of the bathroom.
    You do need the liquid intake but it comes in many forms.
    BTW it is possible to OD on too much water and it can be fatal.

    You can explore this question, but I fear will be fatal outcome. Science proved that person can live without water no more than 5-6 days. The body of adult person on average consis of 65% water, so Is it possible to live without drinking water? - Of course NOT!!!
