    Thanks for joining this group! Hope to keep it somewhat active…share recipes and such =)

    Anyone care to share a little bit about yourself for the rest to see???

    Well, I’m Cristina, from Portland, Maine. Been a vegetarian for about 10 years, but been struggling to keep a vegan diet for a few years. I think the longest was 6 months. I’ll get there eventually! I am freakishly addicted to pizza and I have 3 pups that I love more than anything.

    Your turn! =D

    Awww…I wouldn’t be able to keep my babies away from me, I’d have to sneak them in to campus! Too dependent on them to be apart

    Nat, 20 from the East Midlands in the UK!
    I’ve been a vegetarian since I was 11, but my mum’s been a vege since before I was born so I was raised in a household where Quorn replacements were used as often as meat in meals! I’m a rather naughty vegetarian as I still eat gelatin (I do work in a traditional sweet shop though!)… I have so much respect for vegans though. I’m a picky eater so wouldn’t be able to cut everything out!

    I’m just working part time helping my mum with the bills right now and have two malamute cross dogs!

    Hi I’m Shivani. I’m 19. I live in Connecticut in the US. I’ve been a vegetarian for 2.5 years. Then I converted to veganism a little over a year ago.

    Cristina, have you ever tried Daiya. It’s a brand of soy cheese which is very very delicious. If you ever get your hands on it, you should try making a pizza with it…or nachos. Nachos are good :3

    Hey!
    I’ve been vegetarian (almost vegan) since I was a child, totally vegan for about 4 years, and totally raw vegan for a month. 🙂

    And now I’m totally in love with plums, peaches, grapes, cherries, mangoes and kiwifruits. <3

    Shivani, I love Daiya! My lack of commitment for veganism is flat out due to Laziness… When my work schedule gets so busy that picking up fast food seems to be the best way to eat or I don’t eat at all, I cave. I have no one to blame but myself! I will be actively trying to keep my 99% vegan diet this year to build my strength to being 100%

    Hi. I’m Nikki. I’ve been a vegetarian for about 10-11 years. It’s almost impossible here in Wisconsin to become a vegan (Milk and cheese everywhere!) but I like cheese too much anyway.

    I’ve been on a pie binge here lately, chocolate cream pie, banana cream pie…might try coconut cream pie for the first time next. Ugh….I will start learning how to make vegan versions here soon

    Been vegetarian for 20 years. Not even by force, either. Apparently I would throw away even the tiniest slivers of meat as a child. Weird how things work that way!
    I tried becoming vegan for a few months, but I couldn’t find it in myself to give up dairy or egg products. A little disheartening. 🙁

    Hey! I’ve been vegetarian for almost 10 years now, vegan for 3. I’m always looking for new recipes and I’d love to hear everyone’s favorites. I also just helped a friend transition to veganism, so if anyone needs any extra support, I’d be happy to help!

    Would any of you vegans be interested in starting up a vegan support group thread?????

    Hello! I’ve been a vegetarian for about 10 years now, since I was 13 or so. I’m not sure I could ever be a vegan, because I love cheese and ice cream way too much.

    Hi! I’m surprised about the quantity of veg(etari)ans in this site! There are a connection between vegetarianism/veganism and asexuality? Maybe it is beacuse both things are very inusual, alternative, rare or whatelse? Anyway, i’m glad to be here :).

    I’m 25 years old. Became vegetarian arround early 2009 and vegan a few months later. Now it is almost my “veggie-aniversary”. The reason that motivated me to this great decission is the love for all animals, without any exception (human included, of course). Now it is the best decission i had in all my life :).

    Greetings and salutations! ^_^

    I’m Michelle, I’m 25, and I am from the US, but I am living in rural Japan at the moment (and hoping to go to graduate school in Europe soon if I can get a scholarship) *fingers crossed*.

    I am an Abolitionist Vegan, which means I think gradual welfare reforms will not end cruelty against animals, but only veganism and ceasing to use animals as property will end the harm caused to them (in the same way only abolition of human slavery ends the cruelty and not just “whipping slaves less” or other such measures). I think veganism is not some great feat or only something that special people can do, but indeed what we owe the animals. We have no right to hurt them and anything but veganism hurts them (the dairy, egg, and all industries that use animals are just as cruel as the meat industry), thus veganism is merely a moral baseline. You can read more about it here: http://www.abolitionistapproach.com

    Other than that, I am a complete nerd! I love learning, philosophy, being outdoors, and theatre.

    Hi Michelle, thank you for posting info on abolitionist veganism. I’ve never heard of this term, but it’s definitely my mindset on being vegan and making a difference.

    I’ve struggled with veganism for many years now…I’m going to go full vegan for the 5th time September 1st. =/

    Wow, we’re at 278 members! Do you think we’d reach 300 by the end of the year??? hehe

    Thank you everyone for helping makes this group grow.

    If you haven’t participated in the forum, please do! We don’t have to talk about veganism/vegetarianism. Feel free to talk about your favorite shows or music!

    Nice to encounter a fellow abolitionist here, Michelle! You did define well what abolitionist means.
    I have been a vegan for eleven years, perhaps the best decision I have made.
