    which one is correct/more natural?

    The phrase is just off the top of my head, I'd like to know what to say before "not to" part.

    1. "How many cups of coffee I need to drink not to lose my concentration?"

    2. "How many cups of coffee I need to drink so not to lose my concentration?"

    3. "How many cups of coffee I need to drink so that not to lose my concentration?"

    3. "How many cups of coffee I need to drink in order to not to lose my concentration?"

    Thanks!
