    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!!]

    My biggest obstacles to veganism have been due to mental illness.

    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.

    I have grown up with 7 brothers and sisters. 4 brothers, 3 sisters. I was raised eating animal products, and never once was taught to value animals. When I was 13 years old I did some research for myself and found out the horrible truth's behind the meat industry. Continued my research to this day on concerning topics. Im now an animal activists and have been teaching people about these horrors I've discovered and how we as a group can speak up for these creatures whoo can't do it for themselves.
