Glad to meet you!<br>
What are your reasons for wanting to be vegetarian? More health, or ethics?<br>
Fish have lives-don't mess with that.

Helloooo and thankies for the welcomes!! Well I've always felt kinda guilty eating meat, I think animals have as much right as we do to live, and I know some, probably most are killed for meat inhumanely, so yeah, it's for ethical reasons. Went shopping today but didn't buy any fish *proud smilie* Has anyone tried those fishless fingers?? And yes Clueless Git you're right!! I 'grew up' watching The Young Ones and still love it now hehe... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

Me too!<br><br>
The original manufacturer of those fishless fingers was a customer of mine, btw. They used to be based in Newport Pagnell.<br><br>
The production manager there was a bit of an eye opener for me. His openly stated opinion; "Our products are crap. Vegetarians deserve no better for not eating 'properly'."

Hey there, welcome to the forums. The easiest way to give up eating fish? I always found the smell to be the best reason, but I think that's only me :-D

Hey there...welcome to the forums...another Brit on the forums is great!<br><br>
Tips for giving up seafood...Try looking round the recipe section for new recipes to try...once you start finding new things you love more than fish dishes , youll wonder why you bothered with fish in the first place!

Welcome Helen<br><br>
I find the easiest way not to eat seafood is to look at it as any other animal with feelings like a pig or a cow.

Welcome, glad to have you with us!<br><br>
If you find yourself craving fish, you could always look up some "fishy" vegan recipes. I've tried doing beer batter tofu with lemon before and it was surprisingly good and really took care of the craving for something seafood-flavored. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Strangely enough, when i first saw your username my first thought was of The Young Ones, and the episode "Time" which featured Jennifer Saunders as a murderess. So both yourself and Clueless Git have a good taste in comedy.<br><br>
Anyway, a belated welcome to Veggieboards.
