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.

I heard from a friend today

that a women I have been in AA with and has struggled with addiction right along side me has died of an overdose. She has struggled for years and had been sober for awhile and died November 13th. She leaves behind 3 beautiful children and was the ripe old age of 35.

This is the reality of addiction.

Still Free

It’s interesting, I was typing in the title for my post and typed in “still” and “struggling” popped up. Nope, that’s not me today, but I remember those days so well. I don’t want to forget them, honestly. It keeps me going in the right direction. I am still alcohol free and going on 4 months without caffeine. I haven’t been this content and happy in years. I have let go of the guilt and shame and laid it to rest with the alcohol.

I remember how I poured my heart out on this site and how much it has helped and inspired me. Keep doing the same everyone.

Like Kaslo said, it can be done.

Checking In

I’m still alcohol and caffeine free. I never knew it was possible to sleep as well as I do. It’s amazing. How did I make it so many years without sleep because I was drinking? Too many.

I am happy and healthier than I’ve been in years. Thank God the alcohol is gone
