i was first introduced to veganism when i was in rehab at the age of 13. i could not become a vegan at the time so i tried vegetarianism and it didnt really work out for me. i think it was because of my age. thats when i first read up on the idea through a book by peter singer and also read animal liberation. i fell in love. i then began to grow up and was a carnivore for many years. i met my best friend in highschool and after we graduated we eventually became much closer and she was a vegan. i at that point became a vegatarian and shortly after became a vegan after i got over my obsession with fried cheese sticks and things of the cheese variety. i have now been a vegan for i think close to 3 years but it may be closer to the two and a half year mark although i dont know exactly. ill look into it i guess. so thats my vegan story. okay then.
