I'm new to vegetarianism. I'm glad I found this site. I've read alot of the posts and am glad to finally find an intelligent forum, where people are willing to hold actual conversations instead of just calling each other names. Thanks VB!!!



I live in Southeast,Texas and have only been a vegetarian since Thanksgiving 2003. Although my friends and family are supportive, they still roll there eyes when they remember I don't eat meat and then they smile that little "your one of them" grins--the usual response I get when someone I haven't seen in a while finds out I stopped eating meat.

When ever I 'm feeling alone in this or just need info, I can come on here and read all the positive things people have posted.

I also didn't realize there were sooo many vegans in the smaller towns in Texas, good job...I know it must be difficult to find good vegan food. Being a vegetarian I can always just order broccolli or some salad or at least a potato at restaraunts although this is unusually difficult at the seafood places around here. And living along the coast ..let me tell you everybody wants to go to eat seafood. I didn't like seafood even back when I did eat meat.

So ..are any of you near Houston? It would be great to hear from you.

We've had a lot of Texans join lately, and we're certainly glad to have another!

Thanks. Have you ever been to Houston?

I've been to Fort Worth, but it was when I was a kid...we went to the Dallas/ Forth Worth zoo. It was the first time I had been on a plane.

I use to see a guy in Rowlett (near Dallas)so I flew to Dallas alot years ago but we never made it to Fort Worth. Mainly stuck around Mesquite and Rowlett. That was when I found out that there was such a thing as a dry county. I had never heard of that before...no liquor...at all. That was when I was really appreciating the affects of liquor too
