Salam. No, Shias don't abstain from drinking water, but every time they want to drink something or give someone else water, they remember Imam Hussein AS.

Wa'alaykum Assalam,

The following supplication is recited when drinking water.

Image result for dua imam hussain drinking water

Imam Hussain [as] told Hadrat Zainab [as] before he died to remind the people when they drink water to remember their thirst.

"Oh my followers! Whenever you drink refreshing water, remember me. And whenever you hear about a martyred or a lonely person, weep for me. I am the son of the Prophet who was martyred cruelly. They crushed me intentionally under the hoofs of their horses. I wish you all were present on the day of Ashoora to see how I asked them for water for my infant son, but they refused to give"

According to abu-Dawood al-Raqy. “ I was in Imam al-Sadiq’s (a.s) place when he asked for a drink. When he started drinking, he began shedding tears and his eyes were bathed with it. He then said to me: ‘ O, Dawood! May Allah’s curse be upon the one who murdered al-Hussain (a.s); I have never drank cold water but remembered al-Hussain (a.s); no man drinks water and remembers al-Hussain (a.s) and his household and curses his murderers but a hundred thousand righteous deeds are reckoned to his credit and a hundred thousand bad deeds are dropped from his credit; and his rank will be raised by a hundred thousand and he is given the credit of freeing a hundred thousand men, and Allah will gather him delighted with Al-Hussain (a.s).”

- (Reference: Al-Wasa`il, from the book of permissible beverages)

    • Let's ask Mr. Science/Ms. Nature . At what age you have designed their physical bodies to start getting attracted to each other for procreation?
    • At one of these meeting, is it possible to ask, listen beloved friends, I have a question. This verse in the quran, النَّبِيُّ أَوْلَىٰ بِالْمُؤْمِنِينَ مِنْ أَنْفُسِهِمْ ۖ  [Shakir 33:6] The Prophet has a greater claim on the faithful than they have on themselves, 
      [Pickthal 33:6] The Prophet is closer to the believers than their selves,
      [Yusufali 33:6] The Prophet is closer to the Believers than their own selves, What is your understanding, since we are gathered here for a Unity meeting, lets really unite and learn from each other. Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him and his progeny) used it, as a question at Ghadir Khum and asked  "Then the Messenger of Allah continued: "Do I not have more right over the believers than what they have over themselves?"   People cried and answered: "Yes, O' Messenger of God." "For whoever I am his Leader (mawla), 'Ali is his Leader (mawla)." No Muslim disagrees till this point?  So, this should be a easy thing for you, only thing you are asking,  in which capacity do you see the Prophet Muhammad( peace be upon him and his progeny) as Mawla?  What is your understanding of " Greater Right " or as per the verse 33:6 "greater claim on the faithful than they have on themselves, " You are only reciting the Qur'an and asking for their valued opinion and understanding.  Why would this not be possible? 
    • بسمه تعالى السلام عليكم What’s the علة of praying with a louder voice during Fajr, Maghrib and Isha, and a lower during Thuhr and Asr?
