I'm learning to live without you now...

I passed my three month mark for being a vegetarian, other than once when I ate a bit of Spam, and another time when there was a teensy bit of hamburger in something I ate.

I'm considering going vegan.

I would like to hear from my vegetarian and vegan friends:

- Are you lacto/ovo, or vegan, or other?
- Why did you make the change?
- How long have you been lacto/ovo, or vegan, or other?
- Any suggestions?
- Other?

I've been lacto/ovo for about a year and a half now. I watched my brother struggle with cancer and made a decision to get healthier. I stopped eating meat, stopped smoking, stopped (mostly) drinking soda, stopped (mostly) drinking caffeinated beverages. I still have the occasional soda/coffee/tea, but not nearly like I used to. There's a lot of obesity, cancer, diabetes and heart disease in my genes, so I had to do something, you know?

I considered going vegan, but I travel for work and have to eat out a lot. And when eating out, it can be a bit more difficult to control what's in your food. So, I allow myself eggs and dairy when I'm traveling and try to refrain (especially from eggs) when I'm home. I'm sure, even when traveling, if I tried, I could find acceptable food, but, well, to be honest, I'm lazy and don't want to. Hell, if being a vegetarian had been a real inconvenience for me, I'd probably have given up on that a while ago. Luckily, along with quitting smoking last year, it just felt natural to me. Like it was the right thing for me to do.
