I recently became vegan (November 2012), mainly for health reasons. I have been vegetarian since 2006 for moral reasons.
As a kid, I never felt good about eating meat. I have always struggled with a deep sense of guilt in many areas of my life, and becoming vegetarian/vegan was one way I could control the guilt I felt for eating meat as a kid.
Animal rights, human rights, environmental issues, education and awareness...
I ran into somebody who told me her brother was vegan, and was apart of a meetup group in Kansas City, so I googled it, and voila!
