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.

Day 17

Day 17 of this stretch. I’m married, and right now my wife’s libido has been gone a long time. But my goal of “full lunar cycle” is almost realized. The tide is turning on this battle.

Day 8

It’s day 8 for me. It was a breeze at first. The pressure mounts though. I’m making a habit of chanelling energy into other areas of my life. To stave off the desire, I’ve even tried a few cold showers, and – in pure accordance with popular belief – they work. Surefire shrinkage.

It’s been at the back of my mind to write an article about this, but I’ve decided a How to Stop Masturbating blog is best. If any of you have any feedback on the advice posted there, let me know! The Ajahn Brahm talk is EXTREMELY helpful!!! I encourage everyone to watch it!

Namaste, and Blessings

getting there.

I’m trying to stop until the next full moon. Dunno why but I always go by the lunar cycle. I’m up to day 5. hehe. Starting to feel it though. I’m going to chronicle my progress on this blog:

Best of luck, everyone.
