October 26th

I am pleased to say that I have now successfully completed my My Vision for Vision Challenge, having survived 20 days without diet coke and more importantly having achieved my goal of raising $1000 for Vision Australia - $1004.

Thanks to all those that supported me. I've proven that an addiction can be overcome and while I will not deny myself the occasionally DC the consumption habit has definitely been broken.

Thanks again, Ian
