People on this board can be really touchy when it comes to how you define yourself.
"I want to eat less meat" would have been a better way to phrase it.
Eating vegetarian is so easy, honest. I would advise having only some meat days if you find it hard start with roughly even amount of days of being vegetarian and non-vegetarian and then if you want to slowly move it towards vegetarian.
From my experince, if you give up meat for a week, you'll miss it, give itu p a month and you'll stay vegetarian!
