Looks like a nice Forum you have here! I have been on and off meatless for about 25 years. The last time I ate meat was about 2 months ago and before that I can't even remember. It doesn't bother me but I just always feel healthier without it. If I find myself hungry and nothing else is being offered I'll chew the meat but that rarely happens. There seems to always be an alternative and at home I just never cook it.
