    I am a recovering alcoholic. I have been sober 26 months as of yesterday. It is a difficult and deadly disease to live with. Not everyone can make it work. It is very sad anybody is taken by their addiction.

  2. Keeping it real in Minnesota says:

    She had a very unique voice and style, she was and could have been so much more if not for her addictions. Very sad to see someone so young throw it away because she wasn’t able to trust anyone to help her. Now her family will reap benefits from her dying, and just like all the other young famous musicians she probably will make more being dead than being alive.

  3. Get a life, people says:

    Oh yeah, Amy Winehouse – she did such great songs like… like… like… Oh, that’s right, she didn’t didn’t do any great songs, or even any good songs.

    But she such a great person… she did…, ermmm, she’s done… well, she’s done lots-O-drugs. Ummm, well okay, she ain’t never done jack…

    I got it – she’s a wonderful role model. Yeah that’s it – all out kids look up to her – well, maybe not my kids…

    But hey, regardless, she’s a great person, right? Uh huh…
