Hi there, Ive been a vegetarian for 24 years and have been coasting along in a non active vegetarian way and have suddenly felt it neccesary to get more active and get more vocal as I havent in all that time managed to persuade any of my friends to become vegetarians. Although my daughter has been for about 10 years and we see things in the same way. I find it quite depressing that my closest friends including my partner cant see that eating meat is wrong. So I feel I need to connect with like minded people and feel quite ashamed that ive left it this long and its taken me this long to find this forum. Glad I did!
