    I've been vegan since I was seventeen.

    Its hard, and I miss cheese, but to eat something with eyes breaks my heart.

    After having roller coster challenges,

    up and down in my life, I decided to take charge and control back my life, and also my health. I attended my health mentor, Skip Archimedes seminar and decided to take a full course 'Detox Your Life Retreat' in Bali. I was having a good time during the whole retreat. We fasted...

    Vegan Since 2005... Vegetarian Since 1992

    I went vegetarian as a teenager for health reasons and because it fitted with the spiritual ideas I was exploring. It wasn't really much to do with animals or the ethical concerns until much later. In fact it was only in 2004-5 that I really started to think about whether or not...

    I am a vegan, and pround of it!

    Animals have the same rights on earth than we do and we need to be kind to them! Its our duty on earth, to protect them! Also, being vegan means less risk to have disease like cancer, diabetes, or else. Being vegan was the smartest choice of my life and i couldnt be more proud...

    I'm not saying anything against vegans

    if vegetarians, but they really should try the chicken nugget. It's fake chicken anyway.

    Vegan Here =3!

    Been a vegan for almost 3 years now and loving it. :P It all started when I came across videos of animal testing thanks to my friend, which eventually led me to factory farming videos. It was painful and horrendous to see, but I'm glad I did see what I did because it has...

    It has been a month

    since I started eating 100% vegan(before I was simply a vegetarian) and it has really started to pay off! I just feel great and I can look myself in the mirror and feel good for once! Best choice I've ever made.

    Let's Go Natural...

    I have been doing my vegan thing for awhile now, the way I feel is so amazing not having the pollution of mistreated, tormented animal karmic energy in me. I do believe that it does leave an imprint on your soul, and the fact that it is bad for the earth, and that all of us...

    New Vegan

    Hello :) I have only been vegan for 2 months, but I am loving it. The only thing that has been hard is the learning curve. I'm sure I haven't been 100% vegan because I'm still learning about everything that is derived from animals. I started a vegan diet to eat healthier, but...

    Do any other vegans have experience dealing

    with pushy, condescending meat eating relatives? My husbands family (big family) is very terrible when it comes to food. The last time I was at his cousins' all they made was meat, no salad's or sides or anything. When I got there they kept going "all we made was meat you can't...

    I hate meateaters who are hypocrites

    and say that they "love" animals. By "loving" animals, they surely mean strictly cats and dogs or animals they don't eat. Just because chickens, cows and sheep aren't as cute and fluffy as domestic pets, they are sentient and capable of feeling pain, just like cats and...

    Finding It Hard To Be Married To A Non-vegan

    I've been married for 12 years to a carnivore.  I became vegan after we had been married 5 years but had never eaten much meat.  I would make meat dishes and eat all the veggies and let my husband have the meat.  When I became vegan he was very supportive but over...

    I do this only to lose weight,

    but I will downgrade to vegetarian when I reach my goal because I honestly don't car about not eating milk and cheese and stuff, but meat and animals are off limits.

    I have been a vegan for a while.

    I personally only know 2 vegans and we don't even see each other often. I really would love to be friends with more vegans who share the same views as me. I feel like my friends dislike that I am vegan, either due to jealousy or different views.

    And what sucks is my family doesn't allow me to!

    ! My parents exercise this great authority over me and I just have to eat fish and eggs and milk when they're with me!!! They don't see how much this means to me, they won't even look into it. I asked them to read a letter that I wrote to them for my birthday. They didn't.

    I was raised MOSTLY vegetarian and I THINK, I could go back to giving up meat (sushi and chicken would be hard), but I could never give up dairy (eggs, milk, or cheese).
