Well, I don't, but I'm 68 and I do have to get up every 4 hours to pee (have Benign Prostate Hyperplasia), but I always drink a bunch when I do go to pee (there being a water faucet in proximity to the toilet), so I've no need to keep water at bedside. I once thought drinking less water in the evening would reduce the need to get up to pee, but I've decided it really doesn't work like that. With less water, I still have to get up, but I just don't pee as much. It's a pointless strategy.
No one needs to convince me of the dangers of dehydration. I watched how this affected my mother when she was very old, and it was terrible. I'm going to be drinking more and more water.
