My cars been drinking coolant like i drink vodka, there is no white sludge in the oil and no smell of oil in the coolant bottle so don't think the head gasket has gone, anywhere i should look first before i spend ages looking for a leak?

Yeah, it can be done when doing the cambelt as most of the work is already done, so it makes sence.
 
  Lots of Alfas
Also check the bleed screws around the cooling system, I think theres 2 on the 172 they can break/leak.

Actually theres just 1, its on the top passenger side of the engine on the plenum chamber follow the top pipe from the radiator along to the engine and that should lead to it.
