And right now, I don't think it has anything to do with it. My reason for becoming vegetarian was my concern for animals - I didn't like how animals were treated in slaughter houses, though I realise now that with some research you can find meat which comes from animals that were cared for and killed humanly. I just wouldn't be able to go back to eating meat, the smell and even the thought that I am eating the flesh of an animal kinda makes me feel a little sick.
My reason for becoming a vegetarian is not druidry, the reason is my love for animals and that I don't want to get them suffer because of I want to eat a steak or something. For now I'm veggie since two years, and it makes me sick to think about eating meat by myself. But it's no problem if someone near me eats meat - as long as I don't have to eat it to.
For druidry you don't have to be vegetarian, it's a personal, individual thing.
I remember something I read in a book of Scott Cunningham. It's told that for wicca you should be vegetarian, but he couldn't do so, because if he only eat green he became very sensible for different energies. Couldn't stand this long and so he starts to eat meat again.
So, it's just a individual thing.
