Can you actually die of alcohol withdrawal? Apparently if you are the family of Amy Winehouse this is exactly how their daughter died. They said that she went cold turkey and had not had any alcohol in almost a month and her body could just not handle going without. They said Amy's doctors advised her to go without booze in a more gradual process. Huh? So, what Amy's parents are saying is that when people go into rehab for alcohol abuse, the clinic gives them booze while they are there and slowly reduces it to nothing? Of course they also said that Amy has done no drugs at all for three years. I guess they are not counting pot since she was photographed smoking pot several times in the past three years.
I understand why they want to put their own spin on her death, just like Keith Carradine's family wanted to when the star whackers got him in Thailand. By the time the toxicology report comes out, this will be older news, so maybe their version of events can stick. I think when the final reports are released, we might get an answer to something else too.
