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.

Gooddman777 Working on Stopping Masturbating.

I was about 13 years old. I started when my friends kept telling me everyone does it. I thought that I was not Normal because everyone elc was doing it. I knew what it felt like because to ejaculate because I was molested at age 9. I thought that it was something bad though. Until eighth grade I gave into Masturbation. Now I’ve been a addicted ever since. Taking one day at a time to over come this fight.

11 1/2. Now I’m 15. I started 3 1/2 years ago.

/me sighs. That reminds me how when I first started I thought it was all pleasurable and nothing was going wrong. Then it came up right behind me and stabbed me in the back.

At 12, by means of of pure curiosity.

Wow, I feel like a crazy person now. I started when I was like…a toddler. My sister showed me how to “rub yourself so that it feels good” and that started it all.

14, going into high school. I was bored on the internet one day…

Before I was 10.

NoodleHead19 is getting it together.

I started at 13, the summer before 8th grade… I’m now 19, a freshman in college. Try as hard as you can to stop as soon as possible. If I had stopped earlier it wouldn’t have been this hard…

12. I was curious. I didn’t like it but was too damn curious.


Started at the age of 19 lol yeah, I was never too much into sex anyway, it started out of curiosity , but I’ve been doing it for the past 3 months and I want to stop and get back to life without sex.

Age 12! Man if I could rewind back time.
