I would strongly reccommend reading some books about Veganism before you get too committed to doing it. I am a Lacto Vegetarian with a plan to someday become vegan. But its very difficult to just jump right into Veganism without knowing anything about it.
Vegans do not consume any animal products or byproducts such as eggs, dairy, or even honey. They also dont wear any animal byproducts like silk, wool, leather. I am all for Veganism and plan one day to take that plunge but you should really do your research so you know what you are getting into.
Check Amazon.com and you can order used books for fairly cheap. Just do a search with the word Vegan.
