But realise that I'm a bit clueless. I only drink white wine. How many units are there in a 175 ml glass?? Thanks x

how many in a bottle ?
<<sheepish grin>>>

I don't own a 175ml glass

2 units

If the wine is 11% then it's two units. Bugger, isn't it?

Depends on what you put in the 175 ml glass and whether or not you fill it to the brim

Check the bottle! Lots of wines especially the supermarket ones, tell you how many units in the bottle or per glass. Usually about 6 glasses per bottle, and about 1.5 units per glass so 10 per bottle approx. Yes, I too am trying to stick to the guidelines! grin

Thanks all - I'll take it as 2 units per glass and try (from tomorrow!!) to stick to one glass per evening.

10 per bottle! Oh bugger - I had convinced myself there were about 8! blush One glass per evening! No wonder you're doing the big bored sigh!

My bad adding up made it 6 x 1.5 = 10 but actually it should be 9 I think! Apologies - that means you are actually allowed a bit more than you think tho!!

but most wine tgese days is over 11%

that's why I decided to give up for a while
I can't stop at one glass!
seemed easer just to completely cut out rather than attempt to cut down

A bottle of wine is about 10 units these days, so 1.5-2 bottles a week is going to be within safe limits. Know what you mean about stopping after just one glass!
