Amy Winehouse has developed emphysema and will die unless she stops smoking drugs, according to her father. Photo and Video below. Emphysema is an incurable disease that leaves its victims struggling for breath.
Amy Winehouse has been in the news a lot lately.
Singer Amy Winehouse, defiant in her drug use, to the point of writing a song vowing not to go to rehab, has the lungs of a 70-year-old from smoking crack cocaine and cigarettes. She’s 24 and suffering from emphysema, a usually irreversible lung disease found in aged smokers, according to doctors. Her father, Mitch, told the Sunday Mirror that watching his daughter deteriorate reminded him of his own 78-year-old mother struggling for breath before she died of lung cancer.
After weeks of a very public slide into drug abuse, Winehouse fainted and was rushed to the hosptial, where she underwent a thorough examination. Doctors told the star that she will need oxygen mask to survive, unless she stops smoking drugs and crack immediately. “To think this could be my beautiful 24-year-old daughter’s life is preposterous. But if drugs mean more to her than breathing properly, then so be it. But the doctors have told her if she goes back to smoking drugs it won’t just ruin her voice, it will kill her. It’s been a tough week,” he father told the tab.
Talk about an understatement! More than “tough” I would imagine. The only positive thing to this story is that MAYBE Amy’s experiences will be a graphic example to other young people of the dangers of drugs.
