I became Vegan about a year ago. Before that I rarely ate meat (definitely not red meat) so that transition to a lifestyle without meat was not too difficult. I never craved meat. Although it was much more difficult in the beginning to find and make meals without animal products. Every meal required planning to make sure that I got enough nutrients and every meal I had to cook for myself (which was difficult since I was still living at home at that point). However, after sticking with it for a few weeks they turned into months and after a month or two it was a way of life for me... To all the new Vegans/Vegetarians-stick with it, dont let family or friends influence you otherwise (none of my family and none or my friends agree with my lifestyle or practice it either) Do what you feel is best. The first few months and weeks will be the most difficult but if you can stick it through them, you will be set...Good luck to you all and its always great to hear more stories :)
