He doesn't say that he is, but I know he is. I hope that eventually he will be able to somewhat understand why I've completely went off the wrong path, but I hope that he can see it as a lesson for himself that he will never stray down this path."

Inmate Tasha Green is photographed inside her cell at the Campbell County Jail in Jacksboro, Tennessee. Green started using drugs a few years ago when she got hooked on painkillers while being treated for a dental problem. "You can say that you're going to do the right thing but it's hard to tell until you do get out of here of what choices you're going to make. I'm scared for my life right now because I don't know what I'm going to do. I'm scared, I think about my kids. Are they going to be mad at me when I see them, if I get to see them? My kids mean the world to me. They're the reason why I want to try to do better in my life." (Image: AP)

And this time I have my boyfriend and that's why I feel like whenever I get out of this place this time I feel like there's hope for me." (Image: AP)

Inmate Michelle Tickle is photographed in her cell at the Campbell County Jail in Jacksboro, Tennessee. "I started using drugs when I was 27. When that's all you do for so long and that's all you surround yourself with, it's all you know. I don't know why I keep doing the things I do. I've detoxed hundreds of times. It's going to kill me if I keep getting high. I want to get sober. I do. It's just I need to change everything. I would need a lot of structure in my life. I would love to be sober and working and being a good person in a community. I would love for that." (Image: AP)

I got to fight for me. Nobody else is going to." (Image: AP)

I know I could have done something with my life. I didn't. I'm very emotional. I take things very hard. ... my mother actually said to me once, you're never going to quit. you're just hardwired for it. Those were her exact words and I've used those words ever since. I thought, ‘You're right.’" (Image: AP)

Inmate Nickie Worley is photographed in her cell at the Campbell County Jail in Jacksboro, Tennessee. "I've made things difficult on my family like the people I've hurt. My dad is actually fighting stage 4 cancer. Being in here and having that fear of losing him while I'm in here and on top of that I leave him with my two of my little kids _ that is the hardest thing. I'm wasting away and I'm wasting my family away. I'm hurting them more than I'm hurting myself. It's time for me to grow up. I've had time to wake up and realize life is too short." (Image: AP)
