You're right. Going veg isn't that simple, if it was as simple as "Well, I'll just go veg now...." then everyone would have done it and forums like this would be about swapping recipes, instead of ways to deal with family, friends and society in general.
I hate to be the one to tell you this, but being vegetarian or vegan means sooner or later someone will accuse you of pushing your 'opinion' on them, even if you don't say much more than "I'm a vegetarian". While that may bother you, you should know that it's not YOUR problem. I always tell people "If you feel guilty about me not eating animals, then that says a lot more about your own feelings than it does about what I'm doing".
Look, you want to live according to your morals, that's good! It's the first step and while it may take a while for you, you can do it! GOOD NEWS!
As for this "I know it's not right for me to like the taste of meat" where'd you get that idea?!
I loved the taste of meat. But if I have a craving, I know ways to get a similar taste without anyone ending up on my plate. You can make your own seitan (a little tricky at times, but quite nice!). You can buy faux meat substitutes. Or you can use the same herbs and spices you'd use in a dish with meat in it, on vegetables and be surprised at how much you don't miss the meat! (Don't constantly eat faux meats, there's so much else out there!).
The others have already given you some spot on advice.
The only thing I would add is, that you can just do this day-to-day for the first little while. I did a 30 Day vegetarian thing, way before I even wanted to give up meat (at least consciously). It helped me find new recipes, my family thought it was only going to last for 30 days and in the end, I'd shown myself I could do without meat! Now it's been over 2 years. I don't think I'll ever eat animals again. You could start with something like that, a small goal to help you reach your larger one.
