vegans annoy me so much

    mostly because they're right. I eat meat because I like the taste and it's convenient. going vegan would be great because animals suffering is horrible but...it's hard.

    it's kind of like doublethink in 1984; when I really think about it I know I'm doing the wrong thing, so I just ignore the fact that animals have to die so I can have a tasty bacon sandwich. and I guess that's why vegans annoy me so much, because they're just reminding me that I'm making a bad choice just so I don't have to slightly inconvenience myself.

    even though I'm thinking about it a lot, and I'm cutting down my meat intake and telling my vegan friends I'll seriously consider it, I know in my heart of hearts I'll never go vegan or even veggie...

    Just getting down your meat/ dairy intake a little bit makes a difference though! And by the sounds of it you're eating mindfully - you know where the meat comes from.

    People ask me all the time if I miss meat and dairy, "how do I cope when someone eats it in front of me?" etc.

    We don't mean to be annoying, some of us are doing this for the animals, some of us are doing this for our bodies. If you ever want advice there are loads of us on TSR who have made the transition. I've been vegan for 18 months. Before that I ate meat and a lot of cheese so I totally understand where you're coming from.

    I feel totally fulfilled by my diet and have more energy. I've not said that to annoy you, just to share that this way of eating is ok and it is possible, even when you live with non-vegans as I do.
