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.

flowersinfrontyou can do it too

The first couple days are kind of rough i recommend some nicotine gum or something like that to take the edge off. After the first few days it gets easier and you don’t really notice it until the times you crave a little but push through. If you don’t succeed the first time keep trying it took many attempts before I finally was able to quit but you learn from each one and have a better expectation for how it will go each time. You learn your weaknesses and learn to overcome and avoid situations that make you want to smoke. The hardest thing for me was not going to smoke with my family members when they went outside I wanted to go to but after a few attempts at quitting I learned keeping my self busy during those (doing dishes, folding clothes…) times worked for me. Good luck to every one else out there trying to quit you can do it don’t give up! 6 days ago

LogophileOn the wagon...again.

Quit date April 23, 2014. I’m keeping track of the money I’m saving to spend it on yarn (since I’ve taken up crocheting). We’ll see how that goes. 4 weeks ago

ain88i got to a comfortable level of quitting

it is a process, and it is not necessary to quit brutally… i am slowly weaning off cigarettes, but i see no reason to stop completely. My father and my brother both smoke, and its a social thing that we do together… the issue was to get a handle on the situation, and not smoke compulsively… but when appropriate… now i smoke 1 cit every 2 days, and its ok… eventually i will cut down to 1 every 3 days. but its not necessary at this time. 1 month ago
