Hello everyone,<br><br><br><br>
My name is Joanne. I've been a lacto-ovo vegitarian since Jan 1, 2003. I think I'm ready to make the trasition to vegan now.<br><br><br><br>
My husband and son both eat meat. My hubby says he'll pobably become vegitarian someday "when he's ready". I keep hoping. Trying not to nag.<br><br><br><br>
I grew up on a small family owned dairy farm. When I saw the video "Meet Your Meat," it brought back some repressed memories. Everybody talks about how bad factory farming is, but a lot of small farms are guilty of cruel treatment too.<br><br><br><br>
My mom and siblings think I'm nuts. When I tell them I'm giving up eggs and dairy, they'll be even more offended. I'm going to need some moral support.

If you go to the Vegan Discussion forum, you'll find two support threads: Weaning Off Dairy! And Weaning Off Eggs! That's a good place to start for moral support. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Hey Joanne, I hope you find support here...I know being on vegan forums helped me in the transition. It is amazing how many people will give you grief over the choice to become vegan...in my experience, many people were understanding of my vegetarianism, but most people (including vegetarians I knew) acted like I was insulting them by giving up all animal products. I second what the others said and suggest you go onto the vegan boards on this forum. Welcome to the world of veganism<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Welcome! Just remember it's your decision and you're the only one that's affected by it. If other people want to be immature that's their choice and you have no control over it. And it's usually because they feel guilty.<br><br><br><br>
Anyway, good luck! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
