Hey Dave, thanks a lot for reacting, I really liked your article on the topic.
To answer your questions, I never doubted of why I was becoming vegan. Sometimes during the first few months I was craving for my good old non vegan favorite meal and did not want to let the frustration grow inside of me. So yes, definitely had some non-vegan days while I was in the process of fighting with my conditioning and social environment (people don’t take you seriously when you say you’re vegan for a week or two). I kept educating my self, that was the key to stay awake in a world where ignorance is used for profit. At some point I stopped questioning the why and the how.
At the end of the day, it’s just about tweaking habits isn’t it?
