I'm currently a vegetarian but I will transition to vegan as soon as I can but I will do it at a slow and steady pace dropping out one item at a time. Cheeze is my thorn.. and I will defeat it.
Reasons for veganism?
My number one is this, it was the main diet since the dawn of mankind and it was given as the ultimate diet in a holistic manner. It is the most simple diet too just grab a carrot or an apple and chew. Animals don't have to be tormented and killed just because of me..
I went fishing with a friend of mine and this was where I realized where my mind and heart was in this manner.. it is in a sense easy to go into the store and see them all wrapped up in their coffins.. but when I saw the hook in the eye of the fish.. and the eye pulled from it's socket.. my stomach turned.. then the next fish.. the hook caught in the gills.. to see the struggeling fish that was obviously in pain gasping for air as the knife penetrated and severed it head.. I could not watch.. so yeah.. VEGAN 4 LIFE! I now actually get sick of the smell walking through the meat and fish department..
Sorry if my comment is a bit graphical.. I won't go fishing again..
