Hi all,



I've been lurking around the VeggieBoards for about a week now since I started thinking seriously about the ethics of consuming animals and animal products. There have been a lot of things going on in my head arguing both the omni and vege side of things for a wile now, so I decided to do some philosphical research and get to the bottom if it once and for all.



I became a serious vegan yesterday after watching the "Meet your Meat" video. Seeing the torment that other creatures can be put through just for certain food luxuries that humans can live without (and in most cases better off) was enough for me to make the commitment.



I hope this is a decision that I can seriously commit to. So far I'm not looking back anyway.



Oh and on a lighter note, I've always loved soy milk, it has a really beautiful malty taste ot it :P

Hey! Welcome! I myself am new to veganism after watching meet your meat video. It was horrifying but im glad i watched it. Now ive shown it to others. Veganism is going ok for me at the moment as i was already a fussy eater who lived of dairy but im enjoying the soya products ok. I just cant bring myself to drink a pint of soya milk just yet... i dont think it woud be quite the same lol.

Hehe. Until I made the switch to veg I was an "omni" in the true sense of the word, I ate and drank just about anything, soy milk included. I don't know why but for some reason I have always loved the stuff. So I could drink a pint easy :P



Anyway, it's good to meet someone else who is also new to this style of diet, not just VB. Hopefully we can support eachother ^^
