    Hi peeps

    Can any1 explain the points system re alcohol?
    1 smirnoff vodka (pub measure) = 0.5 points BUT when I put in 4 vodka's my total changes to 3 points! :eek: I WANT IT TO BE 2 lol ;)
    Also WW red wine - 1 small glass (125ml) = 1 point BUT again if I have large glass (250ml therefore 2 points) it records 2.5 points! I do my tracker online.
    Please can anyone explain that to me? :sigh:
    Cheers

    This has come up many times before (though last time I think it was bread that brought it to everyone's attention). The points are rounded up/down. So, for example, 125ml of wine could be 1.2pts, so is rounded off to 1pt. So 250ml of wine would work out at 2.4pts, so would therefore be rounded off to 2.5pts.

    The easiest thing to do is just work out the points for the bottle and drink the lot...that's what I do :D hahaha

    PMSL :rotflmao:, and I thought that was only me.

    Just tried to work out how many points per glass of wine (I'm on the dregs of the bottle) but gave up because for some reason I can't get my brain to work.

    Drink problem? Moi? Never!!!

    Lol!!!

    just spread the vodka's/wine over a few days (on the tracker only of course ;)) or have 1 for breakfast, 1 for lunch, 1 for dinner and 1 for anytime :p (again on tracker only)

    Honest I don't have a drink problem :party0036:
    The only problem is 2 hands and 1 mouth :eek:
