Like I said in another post in this thread, I have been a vegetarian since I was 4. That's when I realized what I was actually eating. The thought of
eating animals grossed me out, and still does.
Now, I am becoming a vegan. What makes me want to be vegan is because I want to not be a part of the cruelty that animals experience in the meat and
milk industry. I think some don't know what goes on behind the scenes, doesn't think about it, or simply doesn't care. Society has conditioned us to
believe it is perfectly normal to go into the grocery store and pick up a gallon of milk as if were made for us, not calves.
Were you a vegetarian or meat-eater before this change to want to be vegan? I'm just curious.
It seems there are tons of vegan websites to help you. I heard this advice somewhere else, I can't remember where, and it was worded better but: It's
kind of hard when you are becoming vegan because it is hard to know what all is vegan and what is not. So, you just have to try your best to stay
vegan and you'll figure out more of what is vegan/not vegan as you go..or something like that.
Beware of the meat eating trolls. I know throughout my life, as soon I've said I'm a vegetarian, someone will HAVE to tell me, harshly, how cows taste
so good, or how they have to have bloody steaks. It's apparent it's just to get a rise out of me. Even my boyfriend does this to me occasionally.
Anyway, good luck with it!
