Yeah, that might have something to do with it. We might be taking water for granted in North America, although I wouldn't say long showers is as bad as watering your lawn all day, washing your car, etc. Those things aren't necessary :v and again, could argue that a long shower isn't necessary either, but I think it really reduces stress and clears your mind.

Hot, steamy, nice-smelling-soap showers definite stress relief! And we all [ought to] know that stress is the cause / related to mannnnyyy diseases, some very bad, so... Less stress, yay!

I know my dad's house as a kid was on a well, so maybe that's where his concerns come from? "Don't drain the well"?

I spend a long, long time in the shower, usually around 20 minutes, or more if I have to shave. I usually daydream when I'm showering; it helps to calm me down, as I'm usually tense around that time. I also have to wash, condition, rinse, and repeat with my hair, as well as applying body wash, so I guess I take a bit longer than average. It's bad for the environment but I can't get out of the habit, sadly.

On weekdays, I take a cold 5 minute, just to wake me up and get me ready for school. In the weekend though, I take up to half an hour sometimes, of which only 10 minutes is me actually cleansing my body. I guess I'm searching for my soul.

I shower for 10 minutes in the morning up to 30 minutes when I shower at night because I have more time at night. I like standing in the water so that usually adds time. It doesn't take long to wash otherwise.

10-15 minutes. It's enough to wash my hair, scrub myself down, and stand there staring at the wall for a while. Showers always feel really long to me. I'll be in there for what feels like 20 minutes, but when I get out it's only been 10.

My showers are typically 10 minutes or less. When I shave or stand there, they're a few minutes longer. I usually try to wash myself quickly and get out fast.

I usually shower first thing in the morning, it's what wakes me up. I need the water to be really warm, though, cause I hate the feeling of the water chilling my body, even if it's in the slightest amount possible. If the water doesn't get that warm, I'll literally just go to the sink (cause that always has scolding water for some reason) and take my "shower" at the sink. Lol.

But when the shower does work, I let it run over my body for a while before I get the shampoo and lather that, then scrub my body. Then I let everything rinse off, and just stand there enjoying the bliss of the heat. Then I brave the elements and walk out of the shower, and die a little on the inside when the cold air hits my body.


This all lasts about 10 - 15 minutes. Sometimes longer if I really wanna just rest. I piss my entire family off though, cause we all need to use the bathroom at the same time. =P

I keep it short and sweet: put on shampoo, face wash, conditioner, body wash, rinse, maybe turn around a few times to relax, and then get out. It doesn't take more than 15 minutes, probably less than 10 most days.

I don't want to take long showers. Seems wasteful to me.

The amount of time I spend in the shower all depends on my hair legnth, to be honest xD If my hair is really short, it can be from 5-10 minutes, when it's moderate, 10 minutes, and moderately long 10-15 minutes (which is how my hair is now).. however a few years ago when I had my hair down to shoulder legnth it took me as much as 20-25 minutes to shower.

My typical shower routine is just me washing my hair, rinsing it, then washing my body and rinsing it. Then I dry my hair quickly, then my body. Once I look into my mirror, I dry my hair once more, brush it, then dry once more and brush it again.

A shower in the morning for me is like coffee for most people. I can spend a half hour in there easy, and I'm not even doing any naughty stuff.

Typically 10 minutes. I rush stuff...although sometimes I just stay in the shower, doing nothing for around 5 minutes, then I wash my hair and stuffs.

An actual shower usually takes me fifteen minutes, maybe more depending on how much I've done in the span of the day. I don't really use shampoos & the like.

Also, I remember my father sometime barging into the shower telling me to get out - not just knocking on the door, but outright going in the bathroom & opening the shower door to tell me to get out. That's something that I'm not too fond of recalling...

Exactly. Nothing like getting up and contemplating how your day is gonna play out while under the oh-so-awesome stream of warm water! Relaxing yet energizing at the same time.

I take about 10 minutes myself. If my face is overly scruff then maybe add a few minutes more as I prefer to shave in the shower versus in front of the mirror over a sink. More shower time.

Typically 45 minutes to an hour, but this is due to my skin condition - I need to take extended soaks in warm bath water according to my doctor.

For me, it always depends on how long my hair is that determines how long I'm in the shower. When I've got longer hair, I usually wash it twice, so it takes me 15-20 minutes in the shower. If I've got really short hair like I do now, it never takes me more than 10 minutes in the shower (like today, I took maybe 5-6 minutes, tops).

I can't stand being in the shower any longer than I need to, so I couldn't imagine taking 30 minute showers 4 or 5 times a week, when I typically spend that long stretched out over a few days.

I hate showering, but I just can't seem to speed up lol I used to take showers double in length, but I've shortened it to ~20min to save time. I love the feeling of being clean; it's just so bothersome to have to shower so often to achieve it, though.

I shower for 20-30 minutes AT LEAST. I like to think when I am in the shower so I tend to stay in a while. Also no one is usually home when I shower so no one complains how long they are :D

Just came out of a 1.5h bath (shower still not working). It was relaxing, but Hell, it sucks to shave in the bath! I cut myself in so many places because I couldn't get the right angle T.T

You don't understand the value of showering till you can't anymore lol

And if I took a 1.5h shower, my dad would kill me and probably turn the water off downstairs lol!

Depends really. Most of the time I take 10 minutes. If it's one of those days...not going to specify since I have a lot of days...then it may take me up to an hour to get out of the shower. Usually three times a week for that, since long showers and baths are very soothing and relaxing, especially when it's the weekend :3

So basically sometimes it's ten, sometimes it's up to an hour. I just like taking fast showers you know.

I can take up to 2 hours when I'm showering, thankfully I don't get bothered so I can enjoy my wash in peace.

My showers take 20+ minutes. I shower every day in the morning, using body wash to clean myself, as well as Shampoo and Conditioner, which is probably unneccesary since I have short hair but still. I don't shave, just stand there and soak in the hot water whilst thinking about random stuff <3 Nobody bothers me.

Showers are an absolutely essential to my schedule, just cleansing warmth and my head, I think I'll go shower now

My showers generally take about 10 minutes. They used to take a lot longer but my parents' old house used to have maybe 20 minutes of hot water tops so out of paranoia I learnt to make my showers quicker. Sometimes I'll zone out but even then it's rare that a shower goes over 15 minutes for me since I like to be in and out quickly.

If I'm shaving more than just underarms, though, it takes me a lot longer 'cause I suck at it. But I rarely shave anyway because there's no point in it over the winter months and I very rarely wear anything but jeans or long pants. :P So I neglect my legs a lot.

I tend to shower once every two days with the occasional three day gap thrown in. Four or five (gross) days if I'm sick and can't manage a shower, which is unfortunately kind of often.
