London, July 13 (IANS) Mitch, Amy Winehouse’s father, has warned his troubled daughter that either she gives up drugs or face a “long, slow, painful death”. Winehouse has endured a long battle with her addictions, including a stint in rehabilitation earlier this year. She has since suffered a string of health problems including a bout of infectious skin condition impetigo, reports

Last month she was hospitalised after collapsing at her home and was subsequently diagnosed with traces of deadly lung disease emphysema. Her father says she will have to give up her party lifestyle to avoid a painful death.

He said: “She will die. But it won’t be from a drugs overdose. She will die from emphysema. That will be the most likely scenario if she doesn’t check her behaviour. We are talking about a long, slow, painful death - gasping for air. I would like all the people who would give her illegal substances to think about that.”
