    Basically.. i like to go to my local pub once a week and have a few.. maybe more drinks ...

    if i saved all my syns up in the week..

    then went out and had lets say

    6 double vodkas.. (i know its disgusting) with diet coke..

    that would be 30 syns..

    could i get away with that! even if it was all in one day?!

    I need my social life!!! ;-)

    Try having singles, stretching them out over the course of a night... I live in a pub and that's how I cope with Saturday nights... You are still socializing, and not breaking plan... xx

    Yes you can but is it advisable .. possibly not. Is there a risk that after drinking so much your self-control will be reduced and you end the night with a pizza or whatever? Not to mention the risks associated with binge drinking.

    yeah.. the risks of eating takeaway after are there! its the usual routine! i dont want to do it every week.. but want to have the freedom to still go out and have a good time! its not really binge drinking.. its just drinking on a night out i think.. but prehaps the singles might work.. if i had 6 single vodkas that would still be a night out i guess and only 15 syns..

    I don't drink that often (even though I'm a landlady) but I'm going away next weekend where I will be drinking gin (same syns as vodka) so I save up 7 syns or more a day and don't go over. Bonus of flexi syns x
