I'm not quite sure what I am...<br><br><br><br>
I'd say I'm 'freegan', and I avoid meat and dairy as often as possible. I'm not a FULL vegan, and I'm not sure if I will ever be a full vegan....but I like to think that I'm making a difference, even if it's not 'all or nothing'. Anybody else here like this?<br><br><br><br>
I'm lactose intolerant, so I can't really digest dairy anyhow!<br><br>
I own some leather things, I'm sure [maybe my wallet? I think it's fake...hmm], but that's an example of something that I bought BEFORE I became freegan, and I don't see the point in getting rid of it. I'd say I have an animal product maybe once a month, either by accident [gelatin is more prevelant than I thought!] or because I was invited to dinner somewhere and they were serving chicken.<br><br><br><br>
I have to admit, the main reason I became freegan was because I became way more health conscious....I avoid processed foods as often as possible....my diet consists mainly of fruits, vegetables, beans, veggies burgers, rice and soy milk!<br><br><br><br>
I have some strict vegan friends who think that my attitude towards veganism isn't the best....just because I don't ABSTAIN from animal products. Grrr...<br><br><br><br>
I'm not a strict vegan or anything, but I sitll don't see why I can't make a LITTLE bit of a difference by avoiding animal products.<br><br><br><br>
so here I am <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br>

Hi Katy! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/hi.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":hi:"> It sounds like you're doing a world of good, so I wouldn't listen to your friends that look down on you for not doing "enough". Just do what you're comfortable with and be true to yourself.<br><br><br><br>
I'm sure you'll find that most everyone here is *very* tolerant, no matter what part of the veggie journey you're on. Welcome! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

You can make and are making a difference..... I'm a total vegan<br><br>
to the best of my abilities but even us strict ones cannot always be perfect as hard as we may try!! but its not for lack of will, its to do with the evermore complicated world we live in that makes<br><br>
the vegan art seem so hard, but once you've aquired the right mentality to form the skills in becoming good at deciphering food labels and so on, you'll be on a roll (give or take a while)... And of course is not something you have to endure all alone because as well as learning from your strict vegan friends offline, you can just drop in on VB for a wider bunch of veggie 'transients' <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"> and we'll help solve your queries collectively for you to become a vegan pro (if you want) in journeying with us or where-ever inbetween you feel befits! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

You're making a difference! Some people can't be as strict as others... Animal products are EVERYWHERE! It's hard to always avoid them, but if you're making a conscious effort, that's all that counts. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
