Winehouse’s dad worried about her alcohol dependencyMay 14th, 2009 - 12:29 am ICT by IANS
London, May 13 (IANS) Troubled British singer Amy Winehouse’s father Mitch is proud of her for having kicked her drug addiction, but fears she is still struggling with her alcohol dependency.
He insists the singer’s St. Lucia holiday has been hugely beneficial for her as she has managed to put her drug habit behind her. But he admits she is still drinking and is worried that she won’t be able to give it up so easily, reports contactmusic.com.
“After she almost died twice from drug-related problems, to see her walking, smiling - she has progressed so much. But now, if it’s alcohol instead of hard drugs - I don’t think I can go through that again,” he said in a new documentary.
“She said to me, ‘Dad, thank you for pulling me out of drugs’. I said to her, ‘But you are the one who decided to pull out. You can do it again and stop drinking’,” he added.
The “Back to Black” hitmaker has been enjoying an extended break on the Caribbean island since December 2008 following numerous health problems throughout last year, which included a stint in rehab and several prolonged stays in hospital.
