How long have you been vegetarian/vegan?

I've been vegetarian since I was 4 (by my own choice) and I am now, at 16, starting to go vegan. I feel pressure from people who act like it is a life threatening or bad decision. I know it's not, but I get irritated when people have to interrogate me about it.

I don't think I was aware of the social nature of diet until I quite meat then dairy/eggs. I just gotta tell ya u better have your gun barrel loaded at all times =).

33 years lacto/ovo. I'm now going vegan (except I'll eat honey). The hardest for me is finding good cream for my coffee!

The reason people give you crap for being vegan is because they truly admire you but know they don't want to make the effort...and use every trick and justification to not change their own ways. That's my belief!

I went vegetarian when I was 15 [2yrs ago], I was vegetarian for less than a year, then I went vegan. the whole time that I was vegetarian I wanted to go vegan it took a bit, but I was/am so glad that I gave up dairy.actually I had wanted to go vegan for years but I didn't think that I would be able to till I moved out,because of my family and their views.the only reason that I was able to go vegetarian was actually cause of my lil sis,she came out one day and said that she wanted to go vegetarian,it was at that point that I jumped on the chance and went vegetarian with sis and I went veg cause we care about animals,going vegetarian made me feel less guilty,but after a couple of months the guilt that I had for comsuming dairy became to much so I went vegan.and i'm so glad that I did..I wish that I was born and raised vegan.

I've wanted to go vegan for a long time, too Courtney J. It's not as hard as I thought it would be.
