Yes! Do it. Drink more water it's good for everything!
My tip is to buy some small bottles of mineral water. Line as many up as you want to drink that day (3, 4, 5?) where you can see them in your kitchen. Know they need drinking by the end of the day. Decide roughly what time you're going to drink each one and ... do it! Don't leave the room till you've finished the one you're meant to be drinking.
If you're going out take as many as you need with you and drink them when you decided you would.
Sounds a bit OTT but this is the only thing which works for me.
I've gone from practically no water to around 2.4 litres a day in a few weeks - I look 5 years younger - I'm 44, have more energy and don't eat crape anymore. I only allow myself to drink water and 1 espresso every day - no other drinks - I drank tea til it came out of my ears before but then would always want a biscuit plus my breath smelt awful I use a 800ml large water bottle and start drinking as soon as I wake up - take it into the shower/face/make up etc and won't let myself have my espresso until I've drank that 1st 800mls. Then fill up again and say I have to drink second one by lunch time, then 3rd in afternoon/evening. It's amazing how the more you drink, the more you want to drink plus it starts to taste sweet after a while. I now call water Beauty Juice as feel it has done more for my skin than all of potions I have.

Exactly! I had to force myself to drink enough water in the first few weeks after I made a decision to drink more water each day, but now I feel thirsty if I don't have a glass or bottle of water always available at my desk. And it does seem to taste better!
