Trying! Really...

For a while now (probably around 5 or 6 years) I've been trying to become fully vegetarian. Ever since my brother told us he went fully vegan pretty much everyone in my family followed suit except for my mom and I. My other brother and my cousins (we're like siblings) became vegan almost instantly with really no problems. Me, on the other hand, I've been trying very hard. We were all raised on meat and never saw a lot of problems with it until my brother just one day decided after reading a book called Mad Cowboy that it was not worth eating meat. He also did it for moral reasons, which I agree with. This is why I've also been trying on and off for so long to become a vegan, or at least a vegetarian. I completely stopped eating all red meat, and I never much liked seafood or pork, so I am mainly eating chicken and occassionally eggs on and off.

At times, I'm mad at myself for not keeping to this commitment. There are so many reasons I want to remain a vegetarian, but I find that I still occassionally am eating chicken and or eggs and I feel pretty evil after I do it... Seriously, after 5 years you think I would have gone one way or the other by now, but I'm too stubborn and I'm determined to become a vegetarian.
