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 Smoking
Day 1

I decided to quit last night. This is probably my fourth real attempt to quit. I never knew that it could be so hard. I have a highly addictive personality though. I threw my almost full pack and my lighters away last night, which was probably a bad move, because now it is just wasting money. As I said, I have done this a few times before. I want to quit by choice and be able to be around cigarettes and smoking, without giving in to the pressure. I have already had one this morning, one of my friends gave me one. But I asked for it, it was not offered. I am really hoping that this will get easier.


Deskdude I want to start over, but not lose all my stuff. lol

Good for you!!

It’s VERY tough! Have you tried nicotine patches? I find them extremely helpful. The patches take away the physical withdrawal symptoms (by continuing to supply you with nicotine) so that all you have to worry about are the mental/emotional aspects: associations, habits, etc.

Anyway, I think you have to quit by choice. I have been totally unable to do it for other people.

Best of luck!
