I'am in the process of becoming vegan, but I've been vegetarian for seven months now. I've been doing research on how it affects the food I eat, the clothes I wear/buy etc.
I'am 18 and going to college part-time in September, and working when I can. My parents will be helping me with tuition and some living expenses, but they said it will be to expensive for me to be vegan.
I have been going through my room and getting rid of anything that has been at the expense of animals. I buy alot of makeup, hair products etc. I have reasearched companies and contacted some of them through e-mail, but I have noticed that I'am paying a bit more money then just the whole sale prices now.
My parents say I won't be able to do it, I half to buy my own laundry detergent, cleaning products, some of my food. I just need to know if anyone else was in this position? I'am doing this and thats the only option for me because it makes me sick just thinking about all the horrible things animals suffer for on our behalf.
I feel like I'am getting no support from my family, when they should be giving me support because I'am trying to make a difference.
