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.

SpyrunnerI'm having my

first beer since January. It seems odd to drink a beer after all this time. I’ve shied away from alcohol since I over indulged in the middle of last month. 2 years ago


I have had a sore throat for a few days now. I put it off fora while, but I drank whiskey for medicinal purposes only. I’m feeling like I pickled all the viruses. I hope I’m better, buecause I feel a hang over comong on really soon. I’ll try to do better next Feburary. 2 years ago

SpyrunnerSuperbowl done

I enjoyed the Superbowl without any beer. I watched boxing with my son the same way. My wife commended that usually when I watched ‘Idiot Abroad’ I always wanted something to drink to make it funnier. I didn’t even think of having a drink then.

The only time I really did want a drink is when we were having some scary health issues with my daughter two weeks ago. I was really stressed and wanted to calm my nerves. 2 years ago

SpyrunnerMy brother-in-law

told me that he gives up booze for a month every year. I’ve decided to join him. It’ll be a tough Superbowl with no beer, especially when many of the ads are for Budweiser. 2 years ago

nomoredrinking20 days without alcohol

First two weeks were hard in the evening time. My doctor wrote “alcohol abuse” on my medical check up. You know, how you hide stuff like that and don’t want anybody to know ?
I wanted him to write alcohol abuse. To wake me up from this nightmare. It came to the point that drink became not fun, but normal part of my life. If I didn’t drink a day, I felt stupid. If I did, it felt OK.
One of my relatives died from alcohol abuse and his family was damaged by it.Son went to jail where he was raped every day. His wife finally left him and even didn’t go to funeral because he f@#$ed up everything very much.
Don’t want to be there. Feels good that I actually can do this.
Alcohol is fun when used once a week with someone else. Not like I did. 3 years ago
