I'd say whenever you have committed to becoming one and have eliminated meat from your diet.

I will tell you I've been in positions where I was served only meat products, this was an unfortunate event where an accident happened where paperwork wasn't got to a judge in time, and a warrant was accidently issued. I was in jail for 4 days.

Let me tell you I ate rolls, bread, and drank only the ice tea they gave me for the entire 4 days. I scraped some rice off the fish they served (I don't eat fish, and it was jail if that matters I don't trust anything they offer, albeit they do have vegetarian trays for inmates who are there or longer times).

I was already a vegetarian but that did not test me it only infuriated me. However I lived

Why is my dad giving meat at his house "different" to me having no meat at my house? I'm going to give my cat my tuna I have (but don't want) for christmas. I guess it would be rude not to have the meat/christmas dinner at my dads place this christmas. At my own place I can eat what I want.

Why not make something vegetarian and bring it to your Dad's for Christmas to share? It is not rude to not eat his meat dishes. Does he know you are vegetarian? There will be many circumstances in life...at work, social gatherings, etc..where meat will be offered. Knowing how to gracefully handle those situations so that you don't compromise your values/beliefs is important to learn. You can still contribute to a holiday meal and partake in the parts of it that don't involve meat. Being forced to eat something you are not comfortable with is not what I would call polite on the other person's part either.

In the end, only kindness matters. - Jewel

True. I will this time - there's no meat in my flat and I haven't touched the sardines or the tuna I have either. I'll give that to my dad or something. I just had cheese and tomato on toast and it tasted nice. <3

I guess it'll be nice to have what will probably be my last portions of meat.
