I quit Non-Veg from Jan 1st,2011 and its been six months by yesterday.

The nice thing about it is "Now i can say i am a vegetarian from last six months" but there are some tough situations i faced:

1) In my house every sunday, except me, everyone eats Non-Veg and it is very difficult for me to control my feelings towards Non-Veg.On Sundays i prepare Veg biryani or Noodles to satisfy myself that i am eating some thing special

2) Every week i hangout with my school mates,leaving me, everyone is a alcoholic,before quitting Non-Veg i used to eat much of the Chicken they would..but these days i am just sitting with them and having only fryums or kind of..

Almost every other day face situations like this..Where i feel like i was the only vegetarian on this earth

If this is the case in India..I just want to know the experiences of converted Vegetarians..

And she doesn't want you to eat meat either? Not even when you're hanging out with other people?

Well, maybe you can get yourself a cookbook with fancy vegetarian recipes? Then you could make wonderful meals for yourself, and your friends would be envious of you!

There's an interesting post by mark zuckerberg's facebook profile... which says... That he himself started killing birds and animals for his food and day after day he is eating less non-veg stuff and finally turns to vegetarian. The fact is very interesting, he says- that you must know and understand that, for your food someone is sacrificing and after someday this stop me for killing birds and animals... So don't go for market stuff...Hunt for your food... and you'll feel some of the pain that being is going through and if you don't feel so than ...Enjoy your food BTW

Well IMHO Karnati love need sacrifice and you're doing a big one.. Hope if you told this to your fiancee, may be she'll understand your love for non-veg food and allow you for it..Congratulations for new life and All the best

I know what it feels like but you gotta control your feelings, whenever you get the urge to eat meat stop for a second and think about the poor animal that was killed for it.

As an omnivore, I certainly do. I think it was Alton Brown who said something along the lines of when something dies in order for it to become food on our tables, it's our responsibility to treat it well and make the sacrifice worth it. This is why I generally avoid junk food and spend so much time in the kitchen making sure that the food is delicious.

I would like to live in a world where every human being has to hunt for food if they want to eat meat. I wish for that because I want to know what % of the following would happen

1. Folks become more aggressive and kill things to eat it. The animosity becomes a part of them.
2. Folks feel for the things they kill and stop eating meat.

PS: I take no sides on the whole Veg Vs Meat Vs Vegan argument. Everyone is entitled to follow whatever diet they wish to. I am a vegeterian
 
I didn't like the taste of tongue and it didn't like the taste of me. I will now try this tiny ad:
