    I love wine, but it isn't great at 4.5 for a small glass of dry white

    Best bet is spirits with sugar free mixers. Vodka and gin are 2.5 per single serving and the slimline tonic/diet coke is free

    440ml of John Smiths is 7 syns by comparison

    Yeah- the only other problem with spirits is that if you are used to pints you can drink them really quickly

    The only other suggestion would be flexible syns. Save some up through the week and enjoy your pints guilt free.

    I'm guilty of saving syns so that I can have a drink at the weekend. I usually have half a bottle of wine either preceded by two large G&Ts or followed by two large Cointreaus. That's 12 syns for the wine plus about another 10 or more for the shorts. I can mostly give up chocolate, cake, biscuits and crisps, but I still need my drink on a Saturday night. :)
