Hello everybody, I just wanted to introduce myself and say I'm new to the boards. I've been a vegatarian for almost two years now, I eat mostly organic food, and I am all about human and animal rights. I just wanted to network with some fellow vegatarians and I was wondering what inspired you guys to stop eating meat? Was it a friend, a book, a movie, just your own personal resolution, or something else? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=""> I want to hear some of your reasons and then I will share my own if anyone is interested.
