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.
Welcome to veggieboards, congratulations on turning veggie. With regard to your family stick to your principles. Eventually they will understand your beliefs and will even admire your resolve. Goodluck
