    Winehouse ignored doctors' advice to step back gradually from her heavy drinking and went cold turkey in the past month, an unnamed family friend tells Britain's Sun. Her family believes that was too much of a shock to her system, the source adds...

    I had a seizure once from stopping drinking cold turkey. It happens usually right away when your body is withdrawling that you go through something physical - not going to happen if she'd quit like a month ago as suggested.

    Plus that is simply the opinion of her father.

    Lol this is all just the fathers opinion, he has no idea what he's on about. Why did he even say that? Just wait till the autopsy. Unless there was money involved..

    its theoretically possible but chances are, there are other reasons.

    it is interesting that she died after playing the drums for hours and hours. might have been over-exertion combined with withdrawal, or a secret stash of something...

    RIP AMY!

    As predictable as it was, it's always sad to see an incredibly talented and gifted individual taken from us so soon. Seems to happen all too often these days...
