It was gradual for me. My mom used to force feed me liver when I was a child, due to anemia,and I would throw it up every time. I didn't much care for meat. God bless her, she thought she was doing a good thing.

I pretty much let go of red meat in my twenties, and then seafood and fowl went a bit later on. It was a gradual thing, and one I knew I had to do. My soul would not let me continue to contribute to the suffering. I used to love my ice cream though, but have found great substitutions. This has nothing to do with animals, but I still do have that occasional cup of coffee. Sometimes it just tastes so good. I have avoided coffee not because of IBS, but because of reflux.

I have found with converting peeps, it doesn't seem to work. I think you can share information, but the decision must come from their heart. I don't think you can browbeat them. Usually when I try to share information that really shows the cruelty, whether it be a book, documentary, etc., they usually turn away. They just don't want to know how that chicken or turkey got on their plate. They let others do their dirty work for them, and their conscience remains clear. I just don't know how. I bet if someone suddenly told people that they had to go to the field and slice that cow/pig up, or chase that chicken/turkey and carve it up, many would rethink it. If they were told they had to knock that cow in the head to stun it, slit its throat, skin it, and slice it open, (many times while the animal is still alive), then they may rethink things. What you don't see and acknowledge, you can forget about. As Dr. Phil says all the time, "What you won't acknowledge, you can't change." And so goes it with the abuse to animals

I have also read that the workers in these areas, suffer extreme depression, anger, substance abuse, violence towards their families, etc. Well if you create and watch death and suffering every stinkin day of your life, what can we expect from them.

I just know that the path I am on is the right one for me. Whether others choose to go this way, is for them to decide. If people ask me to share info, I will, but not in a confrontational way. And you darn well know, that there are alot out there, who just want to argue and fight, and prove you wrong. I just go on my merry way.
