Hi everyone,

I have been a vegetarian for about 6 months after all of the live export coverage here is Australia. I guess i always knew what was going on and could have guessed the extent of the cruelty but I lived in denial like most of the population. Living a plant based lifestyle really is the best decision I have ever made. I must say I have been lurking around here all that time and have gained so much inspiration from all of you, so thank you!

Hi. Welcome to the forum
