  1. Transitioning to Vegan
    Apologies, this is likely to be long. The TL;DR version is, as I say at the very end: How much does one share with others about a decision to transition to veganism? Did you include others in your thought process as you started going vegan, or did you just do it quietly? I'm wondering if just...
  2. Vegan Support Forum
    I'm supposed to go to a dinner with my family and family friends in two weeks, and the dad in the other family made a reservation for a sushi restaurant... They don't know I'm vegan, so it's obviously not their fault, but I'm conflicted on what to do... Sushi restaurants almost always use the...

  8. Vegan Support Forum
    Excuse my poor English in my title. I've been living a plant based lifestyle for a little over a month now. I have carnivore friends, and as much as I love them, it seems we don't have as much in common anymore. For example a friend and I were walking to the gym and we saw a Yorkie pup. She...

    I recently moved into a house with mainly meat eaters, I don't impose my lifestyle on them because that's not my job, but I do get very frustrated when my friend tries to tell me info I already am aware of or researched on. They try to counteract my choices as a way of just showing disagreement...

    Hi there! I'm new and just wanted to say hi and introduce myself :D I've been a vegan for a year now and vegetarian for about 8 months prior to that. I have no other vegetarian/vegan friends in reality as all my close family and friends eat meat so it'll be nice to be able to discuss things...

    So, I've been living the vegan lifestyle for just about five months. I'm really into it, and not just the food, but the cause. I'm still 22 and done with college, taking my masters degree and working as a teacher. All the friends I made in my life are the ones I was with when I was...
  13. Vegan Support Forum
    So my friends are all a bit upset about my "random and radical" change to veganism, and they are telling me that I'm a hyporcrite because no matter what happens I'm going to hurt others, and instead of worrying about other people I should just strive to live a happy life and not "bog myself...

    Hey there. My name is Luci. So a couple weeks ago I decided I wanted to become vegan. Much to the dismay of everyone I've ever known. With everyone in my life bearing down on me, teasing me and criticizing me I realize I really need to find a place to be accepted. So I found this board. I will...

    Hey there! I'm transitioning myself to eating a whole foods plant-based lifestyle, and it's been a rocky journey so far. I suspect I won't ever be truly 100% plant-based, because I still live with my parents and have encountered some health issues in the past whilst being vegan. However, I've...

    I've been vegan for about three months now. I was vegetarian for three years before that. I had never thought to research dairy - what could be wrong with taking milk from a magical milk-producing cow?. I really had this notion that mother cows just produce milk all the time, and I didn't know...

    Hi all Hope I won't get shot down for posting here again, I have posted here about something similar some time ago. I desperately want to be vegetarian for ethical reasons, but never seem to be able to stick to it. I know, that to some of you who may read this, you could think, "well you...
