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.

2 years sober!

It feels absolutely wonderful! It’s good to come back and read old posts to remind me of the hell drinking had me in!!

15 months

This 4th of July weekend was much easier than last year!! Sure it crossed my mind a few times thinking “should I try and have a couple beers”. Deep down I know I’m not going to, but the thoughts still just pop in my head. But no big deal – still had a great time and would not trade being sober for anything!!!

It's been a year!!

I quit drinking one year ago yesterday and it feels awesome!! A promise to myself – I will acknowledge and celebrate this anniversary every year – sober!!!

8 months Sober

Made it thru the holidays, no drinking!! Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve were hard, but well worth it!!

7 months Sober

It really does get easier with time. It has finally become natural for me not to drink.

Started 5th month Sober

Feeling so much better, I’m so happy I finally found the power and need to quit drinking and look forward to remain that way!!

Quit 40 days ago

In April of this year I could not make it without drinking for one day. I feel the best I have in a longtime, both physically and mentally. I have NO intentions of ever drinking again and it feels great!! I’m free….....

30 Days Sober

and I intend to stay that way. I can only hope with time it gets easier.

criscee has gotten 3 cheers on this goal.
