It depends on how much is a lot. It is possible to be completely hydrated and drink no water on it's own, drinking tea and coffee and eating fruits and vegetables. You should drink water if you feel thirsty. Too much water puts a strain on your kidneys and can deplete your body electrolytes. If you drink too much you can have water intoxication, it is called hyponatremia.
