and I'm new here.
I've been vegan for over 20 years. I first turned vegetarian when was in my teens. It took me a year to see the light and i went all the way to becoming vegan.
Do I like being vegan? No, i don't, its hard work at times, mainly having to deal with all the dumb questions, and the derogatory remarks, and the mental torture it brings, knowing what's going on, but feeling pretty much helpless to make much of a difference, but its something i feel i have to do.
