Emphysema at 24

News out of London today that Amy Winehouse has been diagnosed with early stage emphysema. Her father blames her continued drug use, and is quoted in the NME article as saying, "There are nodules around the chest and dark marks. She's got 70 per cent lung capacity."

He then goes on to blame Pete Doherty for his daughter's troubles. Now, I'm not one to quickly rush to Doherty's aid (He's another headcase for another time), but Mitch, it's not Pete Doherty's fault that your daughter is stupid. Here's a girl with amazing talent, two well received albums, and a chance to become one of the most popular singers in the world. Instead, she'd rather smoke crack, become stumbling drunk every day, and cancel one appearance after another, only to be found in the pub later that night. As her mate Pete's old band said, what a waster.

it's very typical of a codependent offender (her dad prolly is) to raise an addict. and it's also typical of them to play the role of victim and blame others for their troubles.

i am a big fan of Pete Doherty and get so sick of people trying to blame him for their own shortcomings. people don't become hardcore addicts because of the company they keep.

poor Amy! that girl needs some therapy.
