Skip to comments.OcSober Challenge: Can You Go a Month Without Alcohol?
Posted on 10/08/2013 10:15:12 AM PDT by nickcarraway
South Africans are being asked to quit drinking for the month of October as part of a campaign to raise awareness about alcohol abuse.
The idea behind the OcSober campaign is simple - stay sober in October.
Instead of drinking away their cash, participants are encouraged to donate it to a charity of your choice.
Organisers hope that the initiative will help to reduce the number of alcohol-related fatalities on roads.
Charity organisations have given the campaign the thumbs up.
Its new for us, but I think if you talk about a campaign like this and you can really market it properly, I can really say that it can have a positive impact to spread the message of responsible alcohol use, David Fourie of SANCA said.
Organisers say embracing that by embracing the OcSober concept, participants can ensure they will not themselves become statistics of alcohol-related incidents.
3 Years Feb for me :)
Be 13 years on Nov 22! Whoo-hoo!
One Day At A Time, Bay-bee!
I quit drinking every day!!!
You Da man!
My dad was drunk a lot.
I have never been interested in alcohol.
Sometimes we just have to sleep.
Beer don’t kount
Not with this administration.
Nope. I need booze to forget I’m momentarily living in a nightmarish commie regime.
Quitting drinking is easy. I’ve done it hundreds of times.
37 years next month for me.
‘Course, today ain’t over yet :)
Can Leftists give up latte’s for a month?
Can teen girls give up nude selfies for a month?
Can reporters give up lying to my face for a month?
Until then, me and Captain Morgan will watch the sun set over the Gulf, thank you very much.
I often do go a month without booze, but when I want a drink, screw anyone that says I shouldn’t.
We have life too easy. If people had to work hard just to feed themselves they wouldn’t have time to be busybodies and get into other people’s business.
About 1200 months for me so far.
Articles like this drive me crazy. Drinking alcohol does not equal drunk.
I’ve only in my life had a small taste of beer and whiskey. My reaction was to both: Pour that stuff back in the horse.
I can probably go another 70+ yrs without it—LOL!
26+ years for me! Praise God!
