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.

Shit: so here I am back again!

It seems to me this goal likes me because it just doesn’t want me to leave. I did over a 100 days before Christmas and, just as I was getting confident, I crashed and burned.

I’ve been drinking regularly ever since and promising myself a few times a week that I’d get back on the wagon. Yeah, right. We all know the script here and, quite frankly, I’m boring myself with this shit.

I felt so bloody good when I was sober, so why the hell did I talk myself back into drinking?

Anyway,this is day 2 and my very good friend Sunny reminded me about 43T by sending me a message via a previous comment. Pullin for ya, Sunny and for all the guys who share this goal.

All the best,

Hi guys

I hope you are all well and progressing well with this goal.
For those of you who remember me, I’m still fighting booze but I have been feeling really confident lately. I’ve been totally sober for 3 months now and I feel confident about getting through Christmas.
Take care and stay strong,

Friday night

and I’m ready for bed. I came very close tonight with the internal debates about just buying a few beers. Only a few days ago I was posting here about drinking against my will and I was almost off to the supermarket again!

Anyway, that’s a Thursday and a Friday done – two tough nights for me. I’ve just got to hang in there till this gets easier, which I know it will with time.

I will never drink again (I’m talking to my ‘beast’)

Have a good weekend folks!
