Anything wet counts as water.
There is some misinformation that certain drinks are diaretic (sp?), but the effect is much less than once thought.
Water doesn't become "not water" when you add sugar, preservatives, flavourings, etc.
If you drink so much because you're simply that thirsty you should bring that up when you next check in with your GP. It can be a sign of diabetes to be excessively thirsty.
