The unflinching memoir of a young woman nearly destroyed by Ecstasy abuse follows her inspiring journey to battle drug addiction and become a nationally renowned role model.
From the Publisher:
The personal story of an Ecstasy addict traces her early years as a popular, straight-A student in small-town Pennsylvania, her pursuit of an acting career in New York, her descent through drug experimentation to full-time addiction, and her struggles to recover.The personal story of an Ecstasy addict traces her early years as a popular, straight-A student in small-town Pennsylvania, her pursuit of an acting career in New York, her descent through drug experimentation to full-time addiction, and her struggles to recover. Reprint. 20,000 first printing.This all started as a choice, my choice, but now I was slave to it.

Every time I swallowed a pill I was tricking myself into seeing and feeling what was not there. But I could only trick myself for so long....

Lynn Smith never wanted to be an addict. A popular straight-A student from small-town Pennsylvania, she moved to New York City to pursue her dream of acting. In the city, she came in contact with new people, new ideas, and a completely new way of life -- a way that exposed her to drugs. She tried pot, acid, and cocaine, but it was the "love drug" Ecstasy that won her heart. Rolling Away is the story of Lynn's frenzied flight into addiction and her long struggle to come back down to earth. At once harrowing and inspiring, Rolling Away is a triumphant narrative about sex, drugs, and rock-bottom survival -- and how a second chance can save your life.

Praise

Publishers Weekly
"Smith has written a fervent cautionary tale; even when revealing the drug's joyful moments, her tone is one of warning and regret." 04/04/2005
