Cows having best friends, crying when they are deprived of their friends, pigs being smarter than dogs and will spend days mourning any family member that dies turned me off from eating beef/pork completely.

Shellfish and line caught fish I still eat. Need a mentally shattering fact about these to get me to stop, too.

I’d like to go fully vegetarian but as an older person all these habits die hard.

Yeah, old habits die hard. Everyone has to find one’s own way (and time schedule) to change them :-)

There’s a lot of research in that respect. Some food for thought:



An online space for the vegan people of Lemmy.

Rules and miscellanous:

  1. We take for granted that if you enage in this community, you understand that veganism is about the animals. You either are vegan for the animals, or you are not (this is not to say that discussions about climate/environment/health are not allowed, of course)
  2. No omni/carnist apologists. This is not a place where to ask to be hand-holded into veganims. Omnis coddling/backpatting is not tolerated, nor are /r/DebateAVegan-like threads
  3. Use content warnings and NSFW tags for triggering content
  4. circlejerking belongs to /c/vegancirclejerk
  5. Lemmy’s CoC applies here too, of course
  6. in case you need to report something, use Lemmy’s native tool or message one of the mods on Matrix
  7. sorry for the passive-aggressive tone of these rules
