I went vegetarian about a year and a half ago, and went COMPLETELY vegan a year and ten days later! Woo! So... a little short of a half a year.

Vegan for a whole year (like it says below). I just wish I hadn't gone 52 years being an idiot before that.

Vegetarian since early Feb. 2009

Vegan since about 3 weeks ago.





I tried going vegan a few months ago but failed. This time I gradually changed my diet and habits. Here I am again, doing great! You gotta start somewhere!

Thanks very much, Bells. Hey cool! Your 2 year vegan anniversary is the same day as my mum's birthday! I'm gonna make her a vegan cake (well, 2 actually! )!

Well done! Same here... I can't believe how long I've been out of the loop with everything that goes on with animals and animal agriculture industry.

Congratulations!!!

I went vegan in February 2011 (was an omnivore before, skipped the vegetarian step) and never looked back, so for me it's been about four years and eight months.

Vegan- a little over a year. Vegetarian- about 16 years before going vegan. Don't know why I waited so long!

Vegan for just over 20-years (since summer of '95.) Veggie for about 3-years before that. Wish it was longer.

Two whole months!

Took me five years to get there from vegetarian because of what turns out to be Crohn's disease, but I'm doing well on vegan food now and I'm loving it!

2+ years as of Jan 1.

Anytime I think I'm perfect, I remember that my cousin lives on an island, and I've never walked over to visit her.
