    There has just been an announcement on the radio that Amy Winehouse has been found dead at her flat in London.

    What a waste, she was a good performer and it all went wrong because of drugs I guess it was bound to happen at some point though :(









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    What an incredible waste of a life. Someone so talented has just self-destructed.

    I hope she can finally find the peace that escaped during her troubled life.

    So sad. A lot of people saying it was expected but still no less a shock. RIP Amy.

    It is sad and it is a waste. I think she had a fantastic voice. Drugs are just bad. I hope someone can get help from this tragedy.

    Unfortunately, someone dying from substance abuse is not a deterrent to those for whom it should be. One of the most insidious problems with treating substance abuse in young persons is their hyper-elevated sense of omnipotence. They believe they will be "ok" and that "it" (whatever bad "it" it may be) won't happen to them.

    There are strong correlational studies that show in some persons (across all cultures, although not a global study) there is an allele in the genetic coding that once triggered, enacts the disease of addiction.

    Having once been addicted to nicotine I can attest to how horribly difficult it is to kick just that "mild" substance.

    What some people find so hard to accept here is that as a performer it is perceived that she had unlimited access to excellent help to find a way to kick the addiction(s). That she didn't, or apparently didn't seek that help is what some seem to be objecting too.

    Unfortunately, I think we'll always have those incredibly talented people who we lose through addiction. She isn't the first, nor regrettably will she be the last.

    I'm sure I have heard some of her music. However, I can't place any of it. It is so said that the drugs overtook her life.

    This is also the magic age they say baseball players come into their own. Weird.
