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.

Anthony Patrick CanforaNeutralizing My Drunkenness

I was drunk and under the influence of jealousy from Sunday, September 2, 2012 to Thursday, November 28, 2013. That is a total of 452 days, which is exactly how long I want to stay sober for. According to my mathematical calculations, the date I will accomplish this goal is Monday, February 23, 2015. The bad news, however, is that 43Things will not be around by then. 4 months ago

Being BrynSince I don't ever even *want* to drink any more...

I am going to mark this as done. But if I start to feel cravings again, or if I (God forbid) relapse, I will re-instate it. 15 months ago

Being BrynInternet dramz: or, not everybody understands how hard it is to not drink.

I was part of a close-knit secret group, and apparently one or two other members who were recovering alcoholics asked the moderators if people could put pictures of bottles of wine and cocktails, and discussions of excessive drinking, under a trigger warning or a “cut.”

I appreciated the suggestion, because while I like these people, they LOVE TO DRINK, and sometimes being confronted with a whole page of DRINKING DRINKING DRINKING rouses serious temptations in me. It all looks so delicious and fun…

Most people in the group scoffed at the suggestion and thought it was ridiculous. I wouldn’t have minded if they had said no, but some of the things they said were so spiteful and dismissive that they hurt my feelings quite a bit. They know my story: alcohol exacerbated my depression and led to strong suicidal urges. It was a terrible part of my life.

So this is another group I’ve left. It’s just as well, because I am working every day at my goal of limited Internet time, and that group can be a time suck.

It just makes me appreciate all the more what an understanding, sensitive, and wise community 43T is…my corner of it, anyway. It’s really something special and I really appreciate everybody here
