I just wanted to introduce myself, and let you all know a little something about me. I am a 19 yr old female who, after long thinking, and reasearching, has decided to become a vegetarian. So far it has been only one week, but I feel so proud of myself. I have cut out meat completely. Money is very scarce, so I havnt cut out dairy, eggs, or byproducts as of yet. I hope to become a vegan sooner that later...when I can afford it, that is. Animals are my passion. I adore them for the wonderfully, amazing creatures they are. Saying I love them would be an understatement. I think we could all learn a thing or two from them. For me, I could never look an animal in the eye, knowing I eat them. Now, I feel so much better about myself. So do you guys think it is atleast a good start for me to cut out meat completely, and then lead up to becoming a full vegan when I can appropriately afford it? Well, that is all.
