I chose to become a vegetarian after Jane Goodall's book and watching "Meet your Meat". I am sickened by the site of meat. Just knowing that a innocent animal was tortured. I can't discribe how awful I feel. My family are all meat eaters, when I told them I was going to become vegetarian they told me that I should read/watch things that make me feel bad about eating meat and that I should just get over it, because eating meat is what we are ment to do. Does any one have any stories like this? I know that I am just going to have to be stuborn and not cave to "peer" pressure. I would like to know how others handled their unsympathetic families/friends.
