I think it may be easier to become a vegetarian if you do it in a phased manner, rather than overnight - this was my experience. I've been a full vegetarian for the past 4 years (previously having a meat-filled diet). I first stopped eating red meat, then just allowed my empathy with the other animals to naturally lead me further along the path - cutting out white meat, then fish and other seafood, and finally shrimp. In all, the transition took about a year, but at no point did I feel like it was at all a struggle. I do think that having an abundance of delicious vegetarian options is very helpful in making the switch; thankfully, this is the case here in the SF Bay Area! Check out http://www.bayareaveg.org or just type "vegetarian" on http://yelp.com (shortcut: http://bit.ly/9dvjFE). I'd be happy to make some recommendations for almost any cuisine :)
