I'm new to vegetarianism, but it's something I've seriously considered trying for a number of months. I've been thinking about making the change mainly for moral reasons, and I have decided it's something that I definitely want to do. One thing that disappoints me is that the members of my family who I've told about it (basically just my parents and my grandmother so far) seem to be wholly uninterested in my new diet, and maybe even a little bit opposed to it. Since I can't really have a legitimate discussion about anything vegetarian/AR related with most of the people I know in real life, I figured this would be a good place to start and talk with some like-minded people.

So in short, I'm a new vegetarian saying hello.

Welcome to VB. Just ignore your families views, being vegetarian is a personal choice that no one else should interfere with.

Welcome to VB! Usually when they see how easy it is and how healthy you can be, families come around. I hope yours will too.
