Day 1 For Me!

Discussion in 'Vegetarian' started by Sugar Magnolia, May 9, 2004.

  1. today is the first day that I will not eat meat, eggs, dairy, or any other food with animal products. yesterday i was completely changed when i saw the things that slaughter houses and farms do to the animals, it's disgusting. i decided i'm done and i will benefit from it. i really feel sick about eating meat in the first place. but i just thought i would let you guys know and if you want to help change anyone's mind have them check out veganoutreach.org...it works.

    YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!! You are truly awsome, going from omni to vegan in a day! Now that is will power. I'm so happy to see all these new converts, myself included (recently went from ovo-lacto veg to vegan). We need to keep it up! Whohoo! The internet is a powerful tool to show people the truth that they many not want to see.
     
  3. i'm glad i saw it. it made me more aware of what goes on and the thought of me benefitting from those animals' misery is so not cool. that website will also send you a free vegan starter kit package thing in the mail, i ordered one.

    That's awesome!!! Be strong against you're cravings and conveniences. Going out to eat is a bitch being vegan but stand your ground. Don't settle for something that has any animal products in it if they make a mistake or just don't care enough to make sure your meal is vegan. The longer you're vegan the more fine tuned your tongue, nose and eyes will be to animal based ingredients. Good luck! I'm soooooo happy for your enlightened decision to change your culinary ways. VEGAN POWERS UNITE!!

    Yea! It is a hard thing to do in one day, but if you have the conviction, then awesome!! Don't let people try to talk you out of it. Be strong. Also, check your bathroom supplies, cleaners, makeup, etc. PETA has a list of all companies that don't test on animals. Most do.:(
     
  6. when i used to think about it i honestly didn't think it could be done in one day either, but i guess i was wrong. so far i'm doing good and i have faith in myself. i just know that i feel so strongly about it now that i am determined and i won't let myself down.:)
     
  7. sugrmag do you think you could email those lists to me? i tried to download it off of peta but my computer for some reason won't show me the pdf files. if you could that would be awesome :D

    Yay well done! I don't think I could have gone straight from omni to vegan (I'm still lacto-ovo). Yay! :D
