I think we often hear (and sometimes say) "They would never go veg*n"..."They" referring to a friend, partner, parent, co-worker, etc...This statement is likely based on something that person has said or done to lead us to believe they have no interest in changing their lifestyle. But it makes me wonder how many people here would have fit into that mold before you actually made the change. I would be interested to know how you felt about veg*nism and veg*ns in general before becoming one. Would anyone have ever looked at you and thought there is no way you'd be giving up meat and/or animal products? I'll post my own thoughts about this after some replies.
