Veganism isn't extreme, it just happens to be unpopular right now. The vast majority of the population consumes animal products - simply because it's habit.
Sometimes, it's scary to do the right thing, especially when it's unpopular. New things ARE scary. They're unknown and unpredictable. It's easier to stay stuck in old habits than to embrace new ones - even when those old habits are destroying our health, our planet, and our human and non-human friends.
Remember this: just because we've lived our lives a certain way, doesn't mean that we need to keep doing it. Courage is making the change happen - even though it's scary. It's human to have doubts and worries. And we don't have to allow them to become excuses.
Take the brave step. There are thousands of us reaching out our hands to help you make the change. It's easier than ever before. The choice is vegan, and the time is NOW. Your body, your mind, your heart, and your spirit will thank you.
