I can understand your problem as I had the same problem of being surrounded by meat eaters in my family. What I did was to wait until I lived alone and then went all out and have now been vegetarian for almost two years (actually almost vegan diet). However I am not sure when or if u will be moving out of your family home and thus be cooking your own food. In the meantime I would recommend you take it in stages and now and then offer to cook the meals sometimes ( you would have to learn to cook the vegetarian meals but this is a really fun thing) and maybe gradually increase the frequency of you cooking the meals. At the same time pick occassions with your family and discuss with them in an individual basis the benefits of a vegetarian lifestyle as well as your choices for going veg. I really hope all works out for you ! All the best..
