Good Deeds presents Lorelie Rozzano is a recovering addict. She is also a mother, wife, grandmother, foster parent, family counselor, author, small business owner, sister, aunt, daughter and friend.

For Rozzano, a phone call to her parents when she had reached her lowest point, out of work, money and friends due to her addictions, turned things around and brought her to treatment. She has now been living clean and sober for 17 years. And it is this success and desire to share her knowledge and the possibility of help to others that led to the creation of her first book Jagged Little Edges, and then her second, Jagged Little Lies, for she has now found what she needed to soften those edges that were destroying her life.“The relief I had in becoming well was actually what I had been looking for in drugs and alcohol,” Rozzano explains. It was in treatment that she discovered her strong inner core and learned how to examine her life and behaviors in a brutally honest fashion and to admit just how her addictions had ruled her life for so long.Rozzano now works at the center she sobered up in and is dedicated to helping others with the lifelong struggle against addiction.

And perhaps for someone reading the bleak, painful truths in the Jagged series, Jagged Little Edges, Jagged Little Lies, or on her blog, www.jaggedlittleedges.com there will come a moment of clarity and self-awareness that can help that person also get ready to change. “After all, Rozzano states, if I can get sober, anyone can.”
