Became a Vegetarian December 25th 2012

About a week before December 25th I decided to give up beef and pork.  I was driving through California, when all of sudden I came across some cow fields.  The way these cows were set up was just so horrible i could not stand it, and it felt like it was going on for hours and it never ended how many farms there were.  After that long horrible journey I decided I could never eat beef again.  At the same time I thought, well pigs are treated no better so I gave up pork as well.  It was not till the following week, on Christmas where we were to have turkey and ham for dinner.  I took one bite and I just could not do it.  I could not face the fact that why is eating turkey any different?  So I decided to give up all meat.  Just the thought of meat, and sometimes looking at meat make me sick.  I'm, glad that I drove through that strip on the road because it made me realize that this is not right.

Heyyy there :) Congrats on your new resolution, how amazing is that. I always love hearing these stories. I wasn't woken up until people on this site showed me slaughterhouse films, and I was like *Slaps self* "What have I been doing?!" Haha. Good to have you!

It was like a very small holding field, smelled like crap.  And there no grass and no room for them do anything really.  So yes there were a lot, but at same time, the way they were set was upsetting as well.

Thats so wonderful! People don't understand how cruel the meat production is until they see it with their own eyes.By the way,have you had any weird dreams about eating meat when you go to sleep at night?In the first few months that I was a vegetarian I had many of them I don't anymore and ive been a vegetarian for a year and a half now.

No I have not had any dreams.  I just have thoughts sometimes about what I used to eat and if I smell it that can be hard.
