    Just wondering if anyone is saving points for something special? I am planning to save mine for a Peters Cornish pasty, as silly as it sound, I love them so much but they are 14 points each :-o I am also saving for a can of coke, before I started I was drinking 2 (2lt) bottles a day, my addiction was so bad I wasn't sleeping. Any idea's what I can drink instead? There is no point in me getting a bottle of coke in and just having some now and then because I wouldn't be able to do it lol the headaches from lack of caffeine are driving me mad (I don't like coffee)

    I may save my points for a hot pocket next week. Once I get back to uni, I'll definitely save my points for alcohol! Btw, is there a list of alcohol point values anywhere?

    Haahaa I save mine for alcohol too. :party0036: When I joined my leader told me that you can save 24 points a week (4 a day for 6 days) from your allowance & can use them all at once on the 7th day. Today my leader explained that you can also only use 12 AP's a week - you can earn as many as you like & should try to earn more than you use. :)

    Oh BTW there is a great list of points for alcohol on the uk lady luck website. But generally (from shop book) 1 measure (25ml) spirits is 1pt, 1 medium glass (175ml) red, rose or white wine is 2pts, 1 pint (568ml) lager is 2.5pts :drunk:
