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.

Happy Saturday!!

I felt so good going into work on saturday morning without a hangover! :)
I just paced myself with the drinks, and stuck to lighter drinks as opposed to the vodka and shots I usually have

I'm limiting myself

to only 2 drinks per night out. Because on thursday night I had 3 vodkas in the space of 3 hours and I woke up with a hangover. I have no idea how. I’m obviously just a lightweight

Saturday night

Only had 4 drinks. Only 5% alcohol per drink. I’m pretty happy with that

The last few weeks have been good...ish...

I don’t feel like I’m hungover the next day anyway which is an improvement, so I think I’m drinking as much. I don’t think I’m able to handle the heavy partying like I used to be able to. Halloween is going to be a major test for me, with all the parties happening. We’ll see how my will power copes…

Here we go again...

Back down this road…

I’m getting way too old for the constant partying and alcohol fuelled nights…

Ok well I’m still very young, but I just can’t deal with the hangovers and lack of sleep in work the next day! I used to be able to manage, but I can’t anymore. Plus I’ll save alot of money.

Only 2 drinks at the weekend

So pleased with myself =)


Back down this road again…


Why can’t I stop?? Last weekend was probably the worst weekend I’ve had in a long long time. Alcohol and me just don’t mesh. I know Idrank more than usual because I was stressed out, and then people kept on offering to buy me drinks so I couldn’t say no. I’ve learnt my lesson though, and am definitely not going out for a long while, so I won’t be drinking


Only had 2 drinks on saturday night, so proud!:)


so I’m going out for a meal with friends on saturday and probably to a pub/club afterwards, so it’s going to be a big test for me. I don’t want to stop drinking altogether, I just want to know when to stop!
