Well, I guess it can't be called a "Vegan Story" as i'm not vegan yet. Perhaps it can be my "Veggie Story"
All my life I have had a problem with almost every kind of meat. I would eat it, but as soon as someone would tell me what it was, I would immediately stop eating it. I just hated the idea of eating an animal... it made me sad. For the last 12 years or so, the only meat I ate was an occasional piece of chicken or turkey lunchmeat but I always in the back of my mind thought "this is wrong, there is no need to be eating this" and about 2 months ago I decided I was going to try to go vegetarian. I was watching a TV show on VH1 about diets and it was talking about how Alicia Silverstone was a vegan and how healthy she felt ever since becoming one and I decided to research it and I came to find that I wanted to be vegan. Actually, more like I had to become vegan because in my heart I knew it was the right thing for me for two reasons; health (I've just discovered I have high cholesterol, so i'm sure cutting out animal products will help! Can't hurt, right? ) and for the simple fact that I love animals and I don't wanna be part of the cause for their suffering. I haven't eaten any meat since February 6th (my 19th birthday) and I feel pretty good about it. So now I am completely vegetarian and within the next couple weeks I hope... no, let's rephrase that! I *will* be 100% vegan!
