Hi guys, I have always been a true animal lover but I did not go vegetarian till I was 35. Right now I am a transitioning vegan (for last 4months or so). I think I was in denial about all the suffering that goes into dairy and egg production. After doing rese:D arch on the subject I just can't bring myself to consume these items anymore. The hard part for me right now is making sure it is not contained in stuff I buy from the store (processed foods) since the ingredients are hidden behind so many different names. Because of that i bought a few cookbooks and have been making most of my food. I still have alot of work to do because animal products and byproducts are everywhere but I feel that I am off to a really good start. I really feel alot happier since making the decision to go vegan =) Shelly

Welcome and you're not alone. I changed to vegetarian around 30'ish and have been trying to be vegan for only a few month. Lots of support and ideas on this forum.
