Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

quit drinking (read all 3 entries…)
I revolt alcohol

I want to quit this because I hate who I am when I’m drinking. I choose to have control, and love myself. Drinking makes me hate myself, and the things that i do. The longest sobertime i’ve ever had has been 8 months. I want it gone forever.


good job

way to go on choosing control! Just curious, what are some of the reasons why you want to quit drinking?

A number of reasons...

I do not like the idea of having no control. I’m a binge drinker… so not only do I risk putting myself in compromising situations EVERY time I drink, but I have a wife and life I risk losing if I choose to engage in drinking. Over the past two years, I’ve slipped twice off the wagon… Which is great, considering before at my peak I was drinking (getting wasted) 2-4 times a week. I love the direction my life is on without alcohol… I hate the direction my life will go with it.

(This comment was deleted.)

Just think this...

Out of all drugs that exist. Alcohol is one of the worst.
