I'm Back

I fell off the wagon this fall.

No, actually, that's not quite right. I didn't fall off so much as jumped off the wagon.

Right into wheelbarrow filled with sausage and cheese.

I've talked about lapses with other vegetarians and vegans, so I know that it happens. Still, I could only describe myself as a self-loathing omnivore. With every bite I took I was torn between the decadent taste and the suffering behind it. I wanted the cruelty-free ethical lifestyle, but not as much as the taste of the food I grew up with.

I didn't realize I could be that weak.

I don't know if I had trouble sticking to a vegan diet because I dived in feet-first, going straight from omnivore to vegan instead of easing in gently.

I resolve to try again.

Starting January 1, I'll be climbing back in the wagon via the 21-Day Vegan Kickstart.

I suppose I'll take it from there and see how it goes.

I believe this concerns a previous post of yours. Hey, p0sychic vamps are cool and can be a little scary. Not trying to be a "real vampire" here, but turn you on to a book you'd find entertaining about the way you feel. Pick up Annie's Gift by Holden Herbert. You can see it on Amazon. It's about a woman who is a psychic vamp and awakens another to her ability. Interesting if nothing else.

You can do it! Again!

Jerome, Hi.

Yeah. I don't think I've ever written about psychic vampires.

Interesting segue into spam, though.

Thanks Kenny! :D

I wouldn't exactly call it spam. Just love my friend's book and thought you might as well. Anyway, it good to see you back in the saddle.

Jerome- OK, since you responded and aren't an obvious spambot (though you could be a covert SPAMBOT ;-) ), I may have to Google this book.

I stand by my assertion that I've never talked about psychic vampires.
