Milk is 99% water. Most humans can get most of their water needs from solid foods (especially fruit and vegetables), and most liquids you drink are mostly water. The only exception is alcohol (and even then, most alcoholic drinks are mostly water).However, if water is making you *sick* you might want to speak to someone about this, especially if you have other symptoms. It is possible the water you are drinking is impure or you have some underlying condition that is making the water upset your stomach.

Substitute water for milk in jiffy cornbread milk?

Water will be fine. It's pretty much the same as using skim/nonfat milk in taste texture. It will be a little drier in texture, so you might want to add a tablespoon of vegetable oil to mimic the fat in milk. Soy milk will be fine too. If they really want a "dairy flavour", substitute part water and part liquid non-dairy creamer, such as Mocha Mix, or Cremora Liquid, which is meant to mimic half and half, but too rich to be used, "straight", in a recipe calling for milk.
