Anything wet is water.

Coffee, tea, milk, juice, flavoured water ... nothing you put into water is going to make the H2O molecules suddenly become some other kind of molecule.

Artificial sweeteners are proven safe, but if you prefer not to load your body with chemicals just try smaller doses of naturally sweetened products, or plain water.

Have you tried stevia? You might need to try a couple of different types.
You can cook/bake with it too.
I have switched from artificial sugars and the results have been great!

yes it counts. You just need to make sure not to overdo the artificial sweetener. Like in diet soda, equal ext. they can bring on diarrhea if too much is consumed.

it takes courage to push yourself to places you have never ben before

to test your limits

to brake through barriers

Personally I wouldn't. I'll count herbal tea towards my water as long as I don't put any sugar or honey in it.

Does drinking tea with artificial sweetener count?

"My body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in me, whom I have from God, and I am not my own. For I have been bought at a price, therefore I will glorify God in my body and in my spirit, which are God's."
