Your intentions are in the right place, and I wish you lots of luck!!! It can be a challenge at times to stand up for your beliefs and choices, especially around well-meaning family members at holiday time! So perhaps you chose a good time to start . . .hang in there and read lots of books to reinforce your reasons for becoming vegetarian. I'd start with Slaughterhouse by Gail Eisnitz and Farm Sanctuary by Gene Baur.
