Because I Can't Help Myself

I have been vegan for 11 years, vegetarian for 16 years. I don't think I will ever eat meat again, and who knows if I will ever enjoy a fresh doughnut from the local Krispy Kreme. I am vegan because there is no reason why I shouldn't be. On almost any level, a vegan diet makes sense to me. It is more efficient, more sustainable, more delicious, and it makes me feel good.

Don't get me wrong. I used to love eating meat, especially red meat. I don't think there is anything inherently or ethically wrong with eating meat. I believe humans are omnivores. I just can't justify it on a personal level, so I have decided not to do it. By now, after so many years without, I don't even think of meat as food. It would make as much sense to me to eat a hamburger as it would to eat cloth.

Hi<br />
you say: I don't think there is anything inherently or ethically wrong with eating meat.<br />
I do not understand this view. I think all animals are entitled to only be eaten by the hungry. If we have choice we should leave them be. That is what I think anyway. I like interacting with animals who are not scared of humans and think they are worth a lot more than a meal. Vegan food tastes better anyway.<br />
Best wishes<br />

I feel the same way....well no, I would rather try to eat a cloth.

Funny. I was vegetarian for 16 years before decided to become vegan.<br />
However I would be a bit harder comparing to eat meat with eating a cloth.<br />
To me to eat meat is so gross as eating S* <br />
I thing is horrible the act of torturing, killing cutting in numerous pieces and eating animals bodies.

Perfect! I love the "It would make as much sense to me to eat a hamburger as it would to eat cloth. " Hahaha

*TWO THUMBS UP!!!* haha, agreed 100%.
