How long can you survive without water? Dying of thirst survival time

Let us answer the age-old question: how long can you survive without water? On average, a person can live for about eight days before dying of thirst. This time may be lengthened or shortened depending upon the temperature of your surroundings. Hotter temperatures may reduce this time to as little as one or two days while cooler temperatures may prolong it too as long as two weeks. This has to do with the rate at which the body loses water through sweat and other means.
