Have you fallen asleep so thirsty that drinking something was all you could dream about? That's what you want here. Thirst Induced Lucid Dreams is both a motivator and a great way to do a reality check when you are in the dream.

Do not do anything to quench your thirst when you first fall asleep. You want to sleep for six hours to get out of the delta phase. Then make yourself wake up. Take a bathroom break if you need to. Next fill a glass with cold water and put it next to your bed. Look at it for a few minutes, and do not drink any of the water, just think about how good it would be to drink it. Because you know you are not drinking any in real life, you will then want to do a reality check if you find yourself drinking something. Odds are good that drinking something will be one of the first things you dream about. Then just do a reality check when you're dreaming of drinking, and you will then be able to become lucid during your dream. Thirst Induced Lucid Dreams give you more motivation to become lucid, especially if you tell yourself that you will have to then do the technique again if you don't succeed at having a lucid dream. It also makes for a really good reality check, because you are just about guaranteed to dream about drinking when you are very thirsty.
