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.

NDureThe 7th Day

A girl from class kept teasing me with a pepsi can… trying to buy me into it… but HooHoo me give up NO…

unless she used a straw ;p

So, I’m still with a zero intake and feelin’ quite well and in a better mood.

But my family are not supporting me; they are still buying by the packs. Even my drastic change from drinking up to 4 L of diet pepsi daily to good ol’ water and fresh juices.. they pretend to not notice it.

Hmm do you think they are aliens? and their weakness is like… water?

Maybe :) 8 years ago

NDureDay 3 & 4: No Retreat, No Surrender

I’m still relying on drinking lots of water and occasionaly apple juice. The benefits I’m feeling in terms of sleeping patterns, mood, comfort, even my skin are priceless.

Although I dunno why I’m startin to get these cravings recently, I know that I am not going to give up. 8 years ago

NDureDay 2: The Surprise

For the first time in months, I woke up comfortably and in a good mood. I ate breakfast and went to university, skipping the daily early gulp of diet pepsi and strangely I got no cravings at all today, and whenever I felt thirsty I just drank lots of water. I actually found out that a bottle of mineral water is much cheaper than a can of pepsi, and is of course more healthy :)

So I finished up my classes, and head back home, and upon entering my room I was surprised by the sight of two 1.5 L bottles of diet pepsi staring back at me, and in the kitchen there was a whole pack of diet pepsi!

The day I start cutting back on diet pepsi, my mom goes on to buy a whole pack of 1.5 litres…Now What are the odds of that?

I am now surrounded by something I’m desperatly trying to shun away from; but this doesn’t mean that I gave up.

I’m still holdin’ on. 8 years ago

NDureDay 1: The Begining

I haven’t drank any diet pepsi today, not even a small can. All I drank was green tea and lots and lots of water..

And amazingly I feel better from day 1! My head/thinking is quite clear today, I felt more energized and less cranky than before, and for the first time in months I took an afternoon nap and slept deeplyyyy :)

I still had a slight headache this morning though (from the caffeine cut probably), but I’m holding on.

Wish me luck, 8 years ago
