    I am a pescatarian ( no birds or mammals ) but seafood eggs and dairy, I was vegetarian for about 5 years and vegan for 6 months ( way to hard for me!) I think you just have to find what's right for you
    My advice is start cutting out red meat, then see how you go and maybe then chicken, then fish etc to wear you feel comfortable , I would be seeing a nutritionist if you are unsure , get a blood test and check all your vitamin levels, and yes you can get all your daily requirements from from food ( vegans will need b12 supplements as yes mushrooms have it but you would need to eat nearly a kilo a day to meet the requirements!)

    There's plenty of meat replacement foods out there too like sanitarium or quorn brand stuff, they can help you have your normal meals without the meat.

    You can also get B12 in nutritional yeast (which is delicious!) and fortified products (soy milk, cereal). We need a very small amount of it so it's not hard to get in fortunately! We also take in more than we expel so it stores well. But if you're eating eggs and dairy this won't be a problem

    Thanks for all the advice, I will take it one step at a time. I think ultimately I'll end up a vegan but we'll see what happens.
