Amy Winehouse’s Family Fears Alcohol Withdrawal Caused Her Death

Amy Winehouse’s autopsy results were labeled ‘inconclusive’, but a source is telling People that Amy’s family believe her death was caused by withdrawal from alcohol. In Amy’s bid to kick her drinking, her doctor warned her to just slowly step down, but her family says that she decided to go cold turkey instead.

“Abstinence gave her body such a fright, they thought it was eventually the cause of her death.

He [Mitch] said doctors had told Amy to gradually reduce her intake of alcohol and to avoid bingeing at all costs. Amy told him she couldn’t do that. It was all or nothing and she gave up completely.

Mitch said the shock of giving up, after everything she had been through over a bad few years, was just too much for her to take.”

    Amy Winehouse’s death was a tragic wake-up call for people battling addiction. The compassion is often overlooked when dealing with people in the media. For example, Jill Zarin has been criticized since her co-star Ramona stated that she had attended AA, ….Jill Zarin . She needs to be praised for trying to beat addiction, not mocked.
