I'm stuffed - get enough food

I'm fed up with it - get enough something (annoyed)

I'm drunk - get enough buzz (alcohol)

I'm tipsy - slightly drunk

I'm lushed - get enough buzz (alcohol)

Question:

In what way can I describe the state of getting enough water (pop, juice, coffee...) with one word like (stuffed, drunk..)

    There probably isn't a good single word for this. If you try to force it you'll end up with something less natural sounding (like in Cantalouping's answer), so it's probably better not to ask for a single word. – snailboat May 17 '17 at 10:49

    I've never actually heard anyone use the word lushed. It is coming back into vogue? – Tᴚoɯɐuo May 17 '17 at 10:53
  • Agreed with @Tᴚoɯɐuo - a lush, yes, but "lushed" as a verb? I've never heard it. – stangdon May 17 '17 at 11:26

    In the context of being offered food or drink, if you don't feel like you want anything to eat or drink, a perfectly normal way to refuse (in a casual setting) is "No thanks, I'm good". In this context, "I'm good" simply means that you're not hungry or thirsty and that you don't really feel like having any food or drink. – J... May 17 '17 at 12:38

    Did you want a word for enough, or for too much? Your examples mostly sound like too much (stuffed, in particular, usually means you've eaten too much, whereas full means you've eaten enough), but the text of your question asks for getting enough water. – 1006a May 17 '17 at 17:09

You could say, "I've drunk too much water and now I'm feeling bloated."

  • Or even "filled". – Anoplexian May 17 '17 at 18:03

We use the word waterlogged at work. I know this just might be our own way of expressing one's feeling about having drank too much water, but everyone understands what we mean.

I have drank so much water, I feel waterlogged.

Merrian-Webster Dictionary

  • So filled or soaked with water as to be heavy or hard to manage

  • Saturated with water

I believe overhydrated is the word you're looking for.

I'm overhydrated.

This would mean you've had too much water. You would just use hydrated to say you've had enough water.

With regards to the other words, get enough is not the correct term. Words like stuffed, fed up, drunk, lush all relate to having too much. These are all terms you use when you've had too much to drink or eat, or annoyed to a point of significance.

    This isn't really a word you would use in casual conversation. In fact, I don't think I've ever heard "overhydrated" used in the context of a human being. In the context of sports or fitness practice you might hear "well hydrated" when talking about an athlete getting enough fluids to stay at top performance, however. – J... May 17 '17 at 12:34
  • I agree and I would defer to Tᴚoɯɐuo's answer bloated as being the best choice for most contexts. However, with regards to meeting the specs without any qualifiers or context, this is as close to technically correct as I could manage. – Cantalouping May 17 '17 at 12:53

    Overhydrated sounds like water intoxication to me, so that's another reason not to use this lightly – Stephan Bijzitter May 17 '17 at 13:41

Probably not what you are looking for but the medical term for this in the extreme (dangerous) case is hyponatraemia or "water drunk".

My first choice of a word to describe this state would be 'quenched'

    Here's a very old-fashioned term for complete satisfaction: slaked. – PMar May 17 '17 at 20:14
