Right - drinking water does NOT cause kidney stones. Drinking water is actually helpful in removing toxins from your body, helps with regularity (taking fiber for regularity does you no good if you're not getting enough water to help it along), and helps prevent getting "mindless" calories from beverages.
I guess I'm kind of weird - I really love to drink water. If I'm thirsty, nothing else will do. I drink it morning to night. I understand the going to the bathroom thing - it can be annoying, but it's not a bad thing if you're drinking enough water.
If you don't feel thirsty and you feel good, you're probably getting enough water. Listen to your body and give it what it's requesting. Some days you need less than 8 glasses, and some days you'll probably need more. You'll know which is the case based on what your body is telling you.
