It’s now more than a month since I turned a complete vegetarian. There were of course one or two or three times when I really wanted to eat meat. It was always “sauer-/schweine-braten + semmelknödel” which I wanted to eat (some German yummy dish). My mouth did water by the thought of it.
20-plus years of non-vegetarian life won’t go away so easily, right? That too I was a pure-non-vegetarian!
But these two-three times, all I had to do was think about my causes (anti-torture, anti-unnecessary-pain), my mouth stopped watering and the thoughts brought me back to the world of reason.
I am going strong with my cause and decision. If you can successfully pull it through for a month, then it can be done well for life.
And today, for the first time, my vegetarianism is causing a little bit of inconvenience to a friend who has invited me over - for dinner. When I called him to remind, he had to change his plans a bit. (Here is where I think about what my mom says, to which I agree that one should be ready to accept and adjust to whatever his host has to offer, so that no discomfort is caused to the host. A bit of a sad thing it is, to cause inconvenience)
I regret the inconvenience, but dude, this is me, you got to cope with it! :)
Signing off, Sands.
PS: The very same way I used to be addicted to Brian Adams in 2005, Elvis Presley in 2007-2008, now it is Beatles for 2009. And the song of the day/week is:
Something in the way she moves,
Attracts me like no other lover.
…. … believe and how.
I also love the “While my guitar gently weeps”
PPS: Going off from internet for one or two days.
