It actually surprised me that someone hasn't already started this thread, as it could be an interesting way to meet fellow non-carnivore and carnivore friends alike. Post how long you have been vegetarian as well as what made you go that direction. Iâ€™ll start. Itâ€™s been since October/November 2007 for me, for health reasons. Of course, it soon became both an emotional conscience and health matter. Iâ€™m concerned with the well-being of creatures and the chemicals and hormones used in farmed animal feeds.
