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.

start smoking (read all 4 entries…)

I started smoking, I smoked quite a bit but I do not hink I smoked enough. I never really got any pleasure out of smoking, it was just a thing I did. Without really thinking I reduced the anount to 1 a week. Now I am back in school I have stopped completly and it seams just like i never smoked.
Was this just because I did not smoke enough or consistently enough to get the cravings to keep me smoking. I smoked about 3 4 a day for about 4 weeks, except the weekends.

Ok so i started but not much I some about a 4 a day sometimes more sometimes less, usally in the evenings and not on the week end. i have not yet had anything that I could say is a crave so how much more and for how long will i have to smoke before i get addicted, bringing me more pleasure out of smoking?
