Since June, or so I thought. As it turns out, the chicken flavour instant noodles that I used to love so much aren't actually vegetarian anymore >.<

So only around a month :(

Vegetarian 12 years with a very small time in between when I ate meat again....terrible. I eat a pretty much vegan diet on the regular but don't identify as vegan.

I've been a vegetarian for nearly 4 years and I'm in the process of switching to vegan c: Although, I admit there was a period of about 2-3 months last year where I switched to pescetarian but eating meat of any kind is just truly not for me. It makes me feel like shit.

Pescetarian since this summer. I'd like to be vegan, but my parents refuse to let me cut out anything else soo that'll have to wait about a year or two until I'm able to move out unfortunately.

I started being a Vegetarian in Grade-Eight and I am currently in Grade-Twelve so it's been about 5 years now.
Once I graduate I'm going to slowly transition into being Vegan.

Im seriously considering being vegan. Meat sometimes bugs my stomach, milk gives me stomach issues(ive already stopped drinking it) cheese can, so I cut down. I cut down on meat too. I want to be healthier and I know animal products cause an acidic body, and I don't want that. Just with my current living situation, I have no control over what food is bought for dinner, so we end up eating meat. When my husband and I can move out, I plan in transitioning to vegetarian and then vegan. I want to raise our kids vegan too!

Pescetarian since about 8, became a vegetarian at about 9 and converted to veganism about a month ago :)

I'm trying to leave MPA but if anyone wants to get in contact with me or wants some positivity in their day, I have a recovery blog: 


If you're reading this, I hope you have a long and happy life, and know that there is always hope and time for change. Even if you don't want to recover, take time to take care of yourself (vitamins, drink water, sleep enough :) ). You are worth it, and I promise you that you have some beautiful days ahead of you.

I'll be vegan for 3 years, in 1 week.

I went vegan as soon as I learned about the health risks and ethics, plus I didn't see the need to be hypocritical and deliver half-assed work, so switched immediately.

I became paranoid about chemicals and treatment of farm animals so when I was 16 I began only eating the meat that my dad got hunting or from the farm next door, because I worked there every so often and knew the animals were living well and not certified organic. Then when I went away to college and it was easier I became vegetarian, which was over 2 years ago now. Not gonna lie I cheated a bit my first winter home because my family guilted me into it, but I found that pescatarian was a better fit for my lifestyle, so I've been doing that for 2 years this January.

I've been a vegan for only a week. I can already feel how much better I feel already. I am still trying to reduce my junk food intake (all vegan ovi) and start eat more fresh foods
