How long have you been vegetarian/vegan?

I went veg in '96 after realizing I did not have to eat meat. I was eating a chicken wing & suddenly saw it for what it was - the wing of a bird. I put it down and that was it. Did not tell anyone for a few months thinking it was a phase. It wasn't.

If you weren't a lifer, what prompted your decision to become vegetarian/vegan?

I could no longer separate food animals from pet animals. I do not want to contribute to the pain and suffering of food animals. I have loved many pets, and I'm pretty sure they have souls like we do. I know they feel joy and pain.


I write for The Atlanta Examiner on topics veg & am trolling for content. Interested in lifestyle topics, publicizing veg groups, events, products, people. Send content ideas to [masked]. Looking forward to the nxt mtup!
