    *cough* veggies don't eat chicken *cough* :whistle:



    I've-chilled-somewhat-on-this-issue.

    Although-she's-not-a-veggie-as-such...what-she-does-is-of-worth-to-the-cause....

    Not-everyone-sees-the-issue-in-the-same-light-as-me-so-I'm-happy-when-I-hear-that-they-are-at-least-limiting-their-meat/dairy-eating.

    The-people-that-piss-me-of-are-the-people-that-show-no-feelings-for-animals-at-all..you-know-the-types..the-ones-that-wear-meateating-like-a-badge-on-their-manliness-or-something.:frust:

    Or-the-people-that-say-they-love-animals-but-justify-their-meateating-with-statements-like-"I-eat-organic-so-that-makes-it-ok"

    If-people-at-least-see-that-animal-cruelty-is-wrong-and-make-steps-to-limit-the-negative-impact-they-have-on-the-situation-I-can-chill

    ...ish:insane:

    Why-is-it-that-I-can-go-weeks-without-a-cig...not-even-want-one-but-as-soon-as-I-have-a-glass-of-wine-or-beer-I-smoke-like-a-trooper???:frust:

    I-only-smoke-when-I-drink-alcohol...how-do-I-stop-the-relationship-without-having-to-give-up-getting-drunk-with-my-friends?

    any-tips?

    Ta-peeps:D



    I'm-allowed-my-opinion.-I'm-not-encouraging-anyone-to-do-anything...stop-baby-sitting-people....:frust:

    By-the-way..it's-only-medicine-for-skin-problems-not-bi-polar-or-cancer-or-anything-like-that:)

    I'll-clarify-my-position.

    Individuals-boycotting-products-dosn't-make-enough-impact-IMO...so-I-boycott-for personal-reasons-mainly...and-wouldn't-cut-off-my-nose-to-spite-my-face...

    I-would-encourage-people-to-help-organisations-that-target-legislation-and-the companies-themselves-if-they-wanted-to-make-a-difference...rather-than-giving-up meds-that-could-increase-their-quality-of-life.

    hope-that-makes-things-clear?

    Quote from Dapablo

    Query, is all gelatine animal based ?



    Well-you-can-get-vegan-omega-capsules-now..so-the-coating-must-be-an-animal-free-gelatine-alternative...

    I-gave-up-my-prescribed-medicine-2-weeks-ago...

    Partly-because-of-gelatine...but-also-because-of-animal-testing

    Boycotting-etc-is-good-on-a-personal-level..but-we-need-to-directly-target-the-companies-and-culture-to-make-change-IMO

    Quote from the dj

    I find it hard enough getting about in the world as a veggie, because of things I don't eat like mayo which are in *every* prepacked sarnie... But if I was a vegan I'd be fucked.
