Do Twelvers abstain from water during some days in between the first and tenth of Muharram?

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.

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).”
