you all have been so much help to me becoming vegan.once i REALLY make up my mind to do something I do it.And I have gotten a good start here.If I'm not 100% sure its vegan I don't eat or use it.I can't even look at the chocolate my partner is eatting it makes me sick to my stomach.

Somewhere somehow suddenly my stomach turns at the thought of animal products or by products.This morning I was frying toast for myself and partner for breackfast I fried my first because it was with vegan butter and then I fried her's because I couldn't stand the thought of her butter getting anywhere near my bread.

Now I didn't learn how to make my stomach turn thats impossible. It has just started doing it I said above.

Has anyone ealse gone throught this part of becoming vegan?

I'm pretty new to eating vegan etc. but yeah, I kind of have my stomache feeling kind of queasy when I think about going back to milk/eggs etc. Or when my someone uses butter to bake something.

The only thing I have yet to master is: checking every lable for animal byproducts.

I always forget to check the lable for stuff like bread, where one would think it's obvious they don't contain any animal products. Like today I bought some rye bread..and as I was happily munching away I happened to check the ingredients (little habit that I've had every since I could read) and it said something like 'milkpowder' >_<

So now I have this little packet of rye bread on the kitchen counter...and I'm not sure if I should finish it or not.

Finish it, ingenting, and make mental note never to buy that brand again.

And remember, the icky stuff is everywhere - even in things you don't think it would be in (my man jokes that I'll even read the ingredients on a water bottle but hey, better safe than slipped. ).

To the OP, I've had that happen, too. Stuff that I loved to smell when I was omni I can't stand smelling now. Maybe it's cause my sinuses aren't bogged down by meat and milk stuff. And I know it's cause I know where some "foods" came from (which is pretty off-putting right there.... ). One thing for sure - it's even more incentive to fill the house with yummy smelling vegan food.....

Since I have been vegetarian all my life, I have always felt this way about certain "meat" items... however, since going vegan it seems there's many things that "bother" me even more...

I'm really new to veganism

but I'm not disgusted by animal products at all. Yet I'm not tempted to eat any.

My mother makes me put away the groceries and I get a gross feeling in my stomach when I have to touch the packaged meat but thats about all :P
