Ok this is a little weird but anyway, i haven't eaten meat in about 6 months and even since i stopped eating meat, my face and back has been broken out. i've never had bad acne before and this doesn't seem to be going away. is there anything that i need to know.. well what i'm asking is.. is there something that i am depriving my skin of from not eating meat that causes me to break out so badly? Thanks

you can all the amino acids and proteins you need without eating meat. just load up on soy protein and peanut butter among other things. are you eating a very balanced diet? it is true that many new vegetarians don't get enough protein, but that can be changed with a few adjustments to their diets.
also, cut back on greasy foods, that'll help alleviate your acne. if that doesn't work, please go see a dermatologist.
