was it hard at first?

Did your body have to go through the process of getting rid of the cravings for all the other food you used to eat?

It was not very hard except for the fact that my mother (i was like 13 yo) tried to sneak meat in to my food and was 110% UNsupportive. I had no idea how to cook at all. I just made rice aroni every night with cubes of tofu in it!

My parents were not supportive either at first!

I gave it up when I was 18 so I wouldn't have to deal with them. I made it easier on myself by giving it up certain meats at a time over a period of a year and not all at once. I gave up seafood first, then pork, then beef, then chicken, then fish.

Before I would officially give up a meat, I would have a "last meal".
Otherwise I haven't looked back.
