An initiative, which encourages people to refrain from alcohol for a month, sparked quite the debate on social media and South Africans are giving it a skip.
An Australian organisation launched a fundraising initiative called Ocsober, which encourages people to stop drinking for a month.
However, South Africans could not handle the idea of a month without booze and Briefly.co.za gathered some of the most hilarious reactions to Ocsober.
Warra Loops, who goes by the Twitter handle @Dr_weVibe, wrote: "Ocsober is pre-season trainings for December....if you don’t do ocsober you’ll burn out in December."
Social media user @D_LivingLegend commented, "Is OcSober like a pre-game detox for Dezemba??"
TZTambekile, @Tabile_Zukile, added: "#OcSober can miss me, I have too many temptations, starting this weekend when I’m attending a wedding."
Sifiso Gwebu, also known by his Twitter handle @MFIBASH, wrote: "Some people are on Ocsober just because it's a monday..Iyeza iWeekend."
Cristina Yang, @OreoSerunye, said: "#OcSober can miss me tjo imagine your throat being closed for a whole month can never be me, I don't need that negativity in life."
Another tweep, @Zilungile_Mnisi, commented: "Guys, is it difficult to stay off alcohol for a month? Asking for a friend #OcSober."
