Sometimes I get asked how long I’ve been #vegan ... I actually don’t remember exactly! It has been a long road for me. In the seventh grade I was on the debate team and assigned the topic of “vegetarianism”. I know it was God’s intervention that i was placed on the “pro vegetarianism” team, because it forced me to research about animal cruelty at such a young age. I went vegetarian over night!
It wasn’t until I was 23 or 24 that I went vegan. It was a New Years resolution but giving up cheese gave me real withdrawals! I woke up in the middle of the night shaking and sweating until I ate a piece of cheese. So, it took me a little bit longer to go vegan, but discovering what cheese did to my body made me want to quit even more. Eventually, maybe a month of two later, I was a real vegan!
Don’t ever be afraid to start the path towards veganism, no matter if you fail at first. One day, you’ll succeed and being a vegan will come easily. Keep trying, and don’t give up! #fortheanimals
