Either I'm weird, or something is wrong here. For the last few weeks I was being thirsty often, even after drinking a 0.75 litter cup of water in a room temperature..... :/
I know it's hot here, but isn't it strange that I thirst again after a minute or two after such a huge amount of water? O_O

Thought about this as far as your excessive thirst might mean.

It can be from a medical condition Gleb.

Excessive Thirst

Your body needs water to function properly. For example, water helps to regulate your body temperature, lubricate your joints, and remove waste from your body. Adequate daily water intake is very important. Furthermore, it is important to increase your usual water intake when you are ill, exposed to hot temperatures, or engaged in physical activities.

However, if your thirst is stronger than usual and continues even after you drink, seek medical help immediately—especially if your thirst is accompanied by blurred vision and fatigue.

If this continues check with a doctor kiddo..

I agree with anunitu. Have you maybe tried to get an appointment with your doctor? This might be a medical problem.

Have you started drinking more than you usually drink? People who suddenly start trying to get more water, so push for those 8 glasses we're supposed to drink, will start to feel excessively thirsty, especially if they really haven't been getting enough fluids previously. Of course, there is a school of thought that 8 glasses of water per day is more than we really need. It won't harm us, but it's just not necessary.

If you're drinking habits haven't changed though, then I agree that seeing a doctor is probably the best advice.

That said, I sometimes have phases where I feel thirsty all the time no matter what I drink. Something that seems to help at those times, is to eat my fluids, that is, to eat fruit or vegetables with high water content (I find cucumber very good for this, and I eat the whole thing!). So maybe try that first?

Well.. I drink approximately 2 liters of water in this time of year. Until early October. Then the amount of water starts to decrease.
But just in case. I'm not a doctor. Nor do I know whether 2 liter of water here (Israel), is enough or not.

Diabetes. Have you been checked for that?
Big red flag is thirst.

Lots of things can cause it. Personally I drink 2-3 litres when it's hot, but I think 2 should be quite enough, especially if that's what you've always done.
I agree with the others, you should see a doctor, better safe than sorry.

Ok, visited the doctor. She said it's normal and that I should drink approximately 2-2.5 liters of water every day.

Good to hear it was nothing serious! But 2 litres is a lot of water... I wonder how many people actually drink that much.

Tea doesn't count? *worldview shaking* Okay then, I'll have to manage somehow.

If you don't mind me asking, where do you live?In Finland. But no, it's not actually that cold, I just get cold after a hot shower. (But still, quite near Siberia..) It's quite hot, but humid, in summer also here in the north.
