Vegan / Vegetarian Discussion - All Things Veg*n Forum

hi, i'm dodo,
just registered so i figured i should come here and say few words about myself.
born in 1988. and raised as meat eater in strictly meat eating environment which Croatia is.
i was always leaning to the alternative side with almost everything in life.
5 or six years ago i was experimenting with vegetarianism and lived 5 months as ovo-lacto vegetarian.
at that time i didnt really think about animal suffering, i just did it for experiment.
that idea wasn't clear but still it was living in me.
a year ago my consciousness evolved enough to got me thinking and to make difference between my ego and ME, i realized everything in this world is wrong.
at that point, the least thing i could do is to go vegan which i did.
transition from meat eater to vegan was sudden and painless because my will was strong and i swore i will never again be part of hell that meat eating cause.
year later i'm still happy vegan and completely different person then i was before when i mocked vegans and calling them bad names and so....
yep i was one of those guys.

    Thank you for sharing your story with us. You made quite a transition... from being one of "those guys" to being completely vegan. You are awesome! So glad to have you in the community.

    Hi dodo,
    It's awesome to hear that you transitioned to a vegan way after waking up. I went vegan about 20 years ago after a powerful spiritual awakening... my eyes opened wide to what was really going on and I turned vegan over night (never looking back).
    Happy Cow is an excellent resource, so I am really pleased that you found it too.
    Warmest wishes for your continued vegan journey.
