Q: I've been eating meat my whole life and today I decided that I don't want to eat meat anymore. I want to be a vegetarian now. How do I begin? What should I do, aside from not eating anything with meat in it? Should I start buying new groceries for myself since my whole family eats meat and I'm the only one who is vegetarian now?
