Water always water. Unless I am having morning coffee or dinner cocktail/wine, it's water.

Definitely ice cold milk but with an ice cold water chaser.

Water does the trick for me - except for in the middle of the night! For some reason if I wake up thirsty and have water, I'm not satiated. I've never craved KFC cole slaw (lol), but i used to crave milk... havent had that urge since switching to soy milk though.

After having my kidney transplant a year ago, I was constantly craving milk as I was very low on calcium. Even with calcium supplements, I was drinking between two and three litres of milk a day (plus at least one litre of water). It has only been in the past couple of months that my milk consumption is reverting to under a litre a day but still have the supplements.

When I went to lunch today, I ordered a Citron Presse (which is a bottled drink from Margaret River) but it turned out that "they" make their version on site. I use "they" looseley as it is really DIY. A glass of soda water with lots of ice and a piece of lemon is served to you with two shot glasses, one with fresh lemon juice and one with sugar syrup and you make it to taste. I used all of the lemon and just a few drops of the syrup - just enough to reduce the tart flavour without losing it entirely. It was very refreshing, much more so than just the straight lemon and soda water. Been toying with the idea of making a batch of sugar syrup up ever since I got home!!! (Oh and it was much nicer than the MR bottled stuff.)
