    So does that mean you 'count' them or just drink what you want?

    I don't really drink, but if you count it in your calories and don't go mad, you should be fine.

    Calorie Counting
    i personally have cut booze out completely, and its been 4 weeks now! The reason wasnt just the calories in the alcohol, but the food I would eat when I was hungover the next day. There is just no way I can get through a hangover on shakes and salad. So I have 3 more weeks, then I HAVE to go and have a drink to build up my resistance for my friends hen party the weekend after!!

    I think its all about what you can cope with, I know I have a killer headache from just 2 glasses of wine, so it isnt worth the hassle for me. But like the others said, as long as you count the calories and dont go too overboard, it should be fine.

    Think i will give it a miss for the first month,I do enjoy a glass of wine but really want to make a good effort this month. I think I would want 2 glasses at least and that would leave me no snacks for the day, so isnt worth it.

    Hi Eye,

    I have been on SW since Jan and been drinking and using all my syns allowance on alcohol and not snacks or mayo on break for example....

    I have been putting on weight because I have no room for simple snacks or mayo on sandwhiches so they are not dry and inevitabilly end up going over my syns - I would go cold turkey thats what I'm gonna do. Mind you I drink every night and too much of it!

    Scals. when I was on SW I managed to fit in a couple of glasses a week, but SF doesnt really give you much option to add in alcohol, I need my snacks, so yep cold turkey for me too !!!!!! good luck

    Good luck x
