I didn't for my first few years at my current job (been there over 11 years). However after getting a project that required me to write 250K lines of code over 4 to 5 years I quickly found it impossible to manage this much code without source control. The old .zip method every day was not working well. After trying cvs and wincvs, I wish I was using a long time before that. It was so much easier to revert back changes ... and then with the viewcvs/cvsweb it was also easy to view changes through the web. And I know I am forgetting multiple sandboxes (on the same development machine) and branching which are also very helpful...
