This is a tortured soul. She may be mentally ill and self-medicating with alcohol. She may be "powerless over alcohol" in the AA context. I don´t know. But, I do wish society had something better to offer people like her than to keep arresting them and putting them in prison. Although, I am afraid that with the growing tread to private, for-profit prison systems, things will get worse instead of better for people like her.
