Before December 2004 I bought lots of meat. I was eating lots of meat like meat almost every day. Pepperoni/beef jerky/meat sandwiches/pork rinds for lunch. Sausage/bacon breakfast. Turkey/hot dogs/meat on pizza for supper. This was mainly since I moved out of my parents house around June 2004. I started to read about how animals got treated. I didn't realize/ remember how bad it was. Also now I realize how unhealthy my diet was but before I didn't feel as bad about my diet. I was wondering if anyone else was in a similar situation where they feel bad for buying meat that they can't take back because it is already eaten?

I would think there would be a lot of people that felt this same way. I know I do. But you can't really do anything about what you did in the past. Just be happy that you don't anymore

I try not to look back. You can't change the past, just live your life as well as you can in the present, and future. :-)

I can sympathize, - I think many people feel this way at times...



(This thread just begs for the quote from 'Lion King'......

I am in awe of those who go veg*an in their teens. I had thought of going veg on and off since my late twenties, but didn't fully commit to a veg diet until I was 38. Whenever I read posts from the teens here on VB, I'm impressed by their passion, compassion and commitment, and I wish *I* had gone veg in my adolescence, as well.



HERE'S TO YOU, VEG*AN TEENS!

Every 7 years your cells are entirely replaced. (or so I've heard) After 7 years of veg you will no longer have any trace of meat in the cells of your body. I try to look forward to that.

I could have became a vegetarian sooner like when I moved out of my parents house. But I didn't at that time I was eating a diet of mostly meat and vegetables. I was probably eating at least 5 servings of meat if not more on some days. I think it was great on December 10, 2004 when I decided to stop eating meat. My diet started being more carbohydrates less vegetables and then mostly carbohydrates and junkfood.

I feel that the human race is destined to say "If I knew then what I know now..."

HERE'S TO YOU, VEG*AN TEENS!



As someone who went veg*n as a teenager myself, I'd just like to second Amy's comments here. I wish VB had been around when I was a teen!



Cheers, VB teens. Keep on!

thanks. I mostly changed my diet to grains and sugars. I would like to change it more to fake meats, nuts, vegetables, peanut butter as I am trying to satisfy my cravings and eat healthier so I was googling health stuff now.

I can also feel bad about the past and the way I ate.......but...I'm working so hard on being vegan now that I'm proud of myself(as I'm sure all my animal friends are also)for really sticking to this and researching everything before I buy it or eat it.

You can't take back what you have already done but if you could I guess the only way would be to do everything you can to never do it again.
