So i decided to become vegan (again)

I am struggling with that for such a long time now but i think now i come closer to the time that i will make it. It's just isn't making any sense to the way i am and the way that i think, to eat meat. Seriously. I feel a lot calmer when i eat plant based. I am going back and forth for few years now. Like the smoking thing, i got rid earlier this year.. I want my actions and my beliefs to be aligned and to sleep consciously better...
But a reason that this is getting hard is none in my surrounding is vegan or even, values it. On the contrary... Anyways I came to realise, i wasn't very determined before. And that "i will just have meat once in a while" thing isn't working for me either. Because i am confusing my already confused family this way.

I'm not vegan, but vegetarian. What motivated me was the animal rights aspect of it. When I saw what actually happens in slaughterhouses, I was put off meat.

@basilfawlty89 me too. The whole slaughtering thing, i don't want to feel guilty about it any longer.

Fuck what anyone else thinks and stick to what you believe :)

@Samhainn yes that's the plan now!:)
Find a better reason to become vegan. You can inspire yourself by watching various documentaries about veganism and the benefits that come with it

Good for you.

It’s really easy to be vegan now; so many alternatives that aren’t expensive either.

Stick to your guns and live by the principles that matter to you!
Getting vegan food is not easy, esp., for those who ain't into cooking.
Nothing to discourage, stated plain facts.
Enjoy what you Can.

You can try being vegetarian instead of directly switching to being vegan.

It isn't easy.... but if you're determined you'll do it. 🤗

@Lilymoon Personally it will be a LOT easier for me when they come up with a decent substitute for vegan cheese🤢

Eat, meat, those words rhyme for a reason

I love cooking vegan meals but still eat meat occasionally. I think to stick tto a new way of eating is not to try to become too 'perfect' and not kick ourselves if we fail sometimes. Gradually we will succeed and it isn't anyone else's business how we work it.

@Luceleaftea to an extent, you're right, everyone's road is different. But I've been vegetarian for 19 years. It's quite possible and does meet all the requirements for a lifestyle.
Good luck to you. More bacon for me!🙂
