    Default Brand new vegan!!

    Hello,
    Have made the decision to go vegan. It is something I have considered for ages, I have been veggie for 16 years.
    My motivation hascome from a strange place though - the riots that happened last week have got me thinking about how morally I live my life. And sadly I have realised that quite a lot of what I do,is done because I can get away with it because other peopke do it,it is the norm! But deep down I know that morally a lot of this stuff is not right.

    Eating dairy products,I know is not right,it is time I live up to this belief.

    This forum looks like a good place, full of intelligent people,think I will be using it a lot

    Welcome, spanna.

    I think that's a very good point. I was actually thinking along the same lines as you: that a lot of the "rioters" seem to have just been following the crowd without any evil intent, but that doesn't make the outcome any better. We could all do with thinking more independently about what we do, I guess.

    Aw,thankyou very much.
    So far so good! It has only been 1 day though.
    One of the things I was worried about was my tea tasting different,I know it sounds really silly and insignificant but a cup of tea is my answer to everything,it always sorts me out,so I am really happy that the soya milk I am using is great and has not made my tea horrible.
    Yay!

    Hi Spanna!

    we aren't actually that full of intelligent people; there's room for one more...
