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.

smoked the last one...

i smoked my last cig fri 2/23. this weekend hasn’t been that bad i’ve had couple of moments where i’ve been like i want a cigarette. i’ve noticed it’s routine times like when i get in my car, after i eat. it sucked when i went into the gas station and the guy in front of me ordered my cigarettes and they where buy one get one free…but i just ignored it. been hitting the chewing gum pretty hard. one question though…can quitting cigarettes give you a RIDICULOUS headache? I woke up Saturday morning with a splitting headache and it is absolutely killing me! it still hasn’t went away no matter how many tablets i take…i can hardly stand it.

was told i HAVE to stop smoking for about a month

Well I took my physical today for my new job. Everything came back good except for my lung elasticity test. It came back a little weird so the doc wants me to stop smoking for a month and come back and do the test again. if i’m going to stop smoking for a month I might as well completely quit. I had planned on making my last day to smoke the 28th of Feb anyway. The only issue…I have half pack (10) cigarettes left and just cant see myself just throwing them away. I use to be an occasional/social smoker that turned into a full-time full-on smoker over the last year – year and 1/2. The addiction kind of crept up on me. I still only smoke an average 2-3 cigarettes a day depending on my stress or relaxation level but…when i’m really stressed or nervous i really crave them. i know starting a new position is definitely going to bring on that. sigh – no excuses, must quit but dont really have a plan of action right at this moment.
