i honestly did it because of my ED. i could get away with not eating a lot of stuff by saying i was vegan, but i watched documentaries and stuff and even without my ED i would probably be at least vegetarian at some point. i just love animals and think of them as all equal to each other, cows are just as important as dogs to me.

When I was a kid (10 years old) I just randomely started disliking the taste of meat. It became totally disgusting to me. Fortunately, my parents allowed me to stop eating it. Well... and by now (almost 22 years old) I just don't feel like I need it in any way.
Back then it def wasn't because of any disordered eating behaviours (those started when I was about 14 or 15 I guess)

Over the years i had multiple attempts at becoming a full vegetarian, but i just couldn't get past a couple weeks for some reason.
I recently realized how stupid all this is and decided to actually do it this time. It's been 3 months so far. Yes, too little, i know. But i promise i'll make it longer now.

I dunno. Again just curious what drove your choice. I just like having perspective

I also read the World Peace Diet by William Tuttle that inspired me to be vegan again. It might be too woowoo hippydippy for some people but I love it. Haha

I switched to veganism for moral reasons and so far it's been a bit of uncomfortable since my safe foods were mostly meat and I'm have sensitivity to tofu, quinoa, and hemp seeds.
What made me switch suddenly was not wanting to financially prop up things I don't agree with. I still do to some degree of course (for ex, I pay taxes and my country uses that money to do things I dislike) but it isn't really something I can fully achieve while being alive I guess. I think in the past year leading up to it I also read alot of studies and articles on animal intelligence and I started to empathize more with animals.
