Friends and family

Hi guys, i was wondering if any one could give me some advice on what to say to family and friends when they are being difficult about me being vegan. I decided to go vegan three weeks ago purely for my health but now i’m also concerned about the ethical reasons of animal cruelty.

I was getting a lot of insults thrown at me and there was a lot of banter at work. it was getting me down for a bit but now I just laugh it off.
