I met Ela in one of the toughest neighborhoods in Atlanta yesterday. 

BW: What was the best day of your life?

Ela: The day my son was born.

BW: How old is he now?

Ela: 12. He lives with my parents cause I’m so fucked up.

Ela: How long have you been clean?

BW: It’s been 7 years since I’ve had a drink or any of the hard stuff.

Ela: That’s a long time. I can’t imagine… I probably won’t get sober til he’s grown and the damage is done.

BW: You really think you’ll make it that long?

Ela: Wow… I look that rough?

BW: …honestly, It’s not looking good from here.
