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.

40 Days + 1

Almost caved today. Went for a walk, smoked a cigarette… I thought I was going to explode. ... one day at a time. That’s all we can do. And offer our urges and frustrations up to the Lord. There is no way I could have gone this far without Him … and the prayers of my brothers and sisters who struggle with me.

Did it. Now.. someone convince me to go another 40. I’m so ready to give in. God help me.

Day 39

Wow. All I have to do is make it through the weekend and I’ve accomplished the first leg of my goal. I just want to thank all of you who have prayed for me. It worked. I, in turn, have been praying for all you men and women who strive for sobriety over this addiction.

It would have been easier to give up meat. This has been most difficult. But I try not to think about it. Thank God for cigarettes. Hey, whatever it takes. Just don’t give in.

God be with you all.
