Just curious, what obsticles have you faced when trying to stay vegetarian/vegan. I’m about to come back from a 12 month tour in Afghanistan. Where It’s been necessary to break my 5 year vegan streak, and go back to being vegetarian.
I’ve been vegetarian/sometimes vegan most of my life [from when I was a baby til’ I was five and then from eleven until now] and it caused problems with my interractions with people. People would be all sorry if they cooked a meal with meat, people would ask about it ALL the time, I got called “Hippie” or “Weirdo” for it, and for my beliefs, I got kind of embarrased and shy about it but now I’ve got this kind of thing where I’d feel like I was doing something heinously wrong if I did eat meat after my three year streak [nearly four years!!]
Some events in my life have been hard but haven’t stopped me. I’ve been vegan while suffering parental abuse, while homeless, and while nearly broke, through depression, in the hospital… I think, in most situations, if you are dedicated you won’t have to give up your morality just for a little comfort.
