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.

stay sober
I cant believe what I did.

I am sooo damn stupid. I was clean for over a year then a few days ago I relapsed. I drank ahellofalot and smoked crack. I did this for like 2 days straight and I missed 2 days of work. I am sober today and back at work but ohmyGod I cant believe how badly ive fucked up again. I ran out of gas and I was superdrunk and I was just sitting on the side of the road in my car just continually turnning the starter but it wouldnt start because I was out of Gas!! But I was too drunk to understand that and a police officer came up to me and I told her “my car wont start” I told her it probably would in a while and she left! then like 15mins later another officer came in a differnt cruiser and he came up to me and said why dont we move your car off the road and Ill take you home and he did. he didnt test me or anything he just said if id been drinking i should wait till the morning to get my car which I did. I am so amazingly lucky I didnt get dui and also that I didnt get into an accident and kill someone. anyhow in all of that I almost lost my girlfriend and someone who was helping me get drugs stole my x-box and all my games and movies. guess im lucky he didnt steal my tv or stereo or car for that matter. I so much hate that i relapsed i still have to go see my po tommorow and hopefully she doesnt know and wont arrest me but i know it could happen so i may end up paying a hell of a price for a couple day binge. no matter what now I do know that I have alot of work to do to stay sober this time. I have to go to meetings which I had stopped doing and I must get a sponser so that next time I ever think of drinking Ill have someone to call.


I want to:
