If you are looking for people to talk to about living a nondairy life, you should take a look at the NO-MILK (Casein/Lactose/Milk-Free) List. Messages can be posted to everyone on the list to ask for help or supply answers to others. Archived resources, on parve foods or nondairy recipes, for example, are also available. I should warn you that Lactose Intolerance is not really the major topic on the list. Most postings are from parents of severely allergic children, whose concerns are somewhat different from our own. They must rigorously avoid foods with even the sightest hint of a dairy product, something Steve Carper does not recommend for the vast majority of people with LI and although the list is International the majority of the postings are from the US and Canada and most of the products they talk about are not available in the UK (yet), and some of the problems they face (such as distance from a suitable shop ) are simplier in the UK. However, we can all learn things from the postings all the time, so why not check it out for a while in any case?
