i am in the beginning of my journey to go vegetarian and eventually vegan. my motiviation is health reason since certain animal products make me sick, I thought it would be better for my stomach, breathing, and allergies to get rid of all the stuff. just thought i'd join a forum and meet some new veggie people.

thanks for the warm replies .....<br><br><br><br>
the weird thing is that I like meat ... it just makes me extremely sick<br><br><br><br>
yesterday i ate bacon ... this morning I woke up with a sore, swollen, throat ....<br><br><br><br>
it is a sign<br><br><br><br>
part of me thinks it would be easier to go veg <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/carrot.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":vebo:"> if it were motivated by ethical reasons ....you always hear those stories about people who just up and stopped eating meat after realising the inhumane condition and I haven't had that moment yet ... my mom grew up on a farm and tells me stories of finding her pet (cow, chicken, rabbit) on the dinner table, my uncle has been a vegetarian for almost 40 years, my childhood best friend is a vegan ... yet is a struggle<br><br><br><br>
I know I need to go veg to maintain anything near a good quality of life ...<br><br><br><br>
pork = throat allergies<br><br>
read meat = stomach pains/cramping<br><br>
milk = congestion, phlem production, rashes ....<br><br>
poultry and fish = no serious reactions, but taste like cardboard<br><br><br><br>
These were very mild while growing up and now seem to be going towards moderate reactions<br><br><br><br><br><br>
Any tips? How do I get over this enjoy now, struggle later attitude? Maybe I need just good recipes so I have variety that keeps me insterested?

Thats so massively important (variety... There's not many things you can have the same of over and over and still feel comfortable), I know as I tend to have a repetitive diet, so variety must find a way somehow, even for the strict/eco-ethical vegans like me.<br><br><br><br>
Anyway nice to meet you.....
