Verbatim what I just said to my wife. She shouldn't have said no no no to rehab I guess. Such a waste.

I agree with the sentiments expressed above. And here I thought smoking crack made you live longer. You learn something new everyday.

Really sad. Thoughts and prayers are with her family. But like the OP says, not surprising. :(

I am sure assuming that she died from a drug overdose, but has their been any confirmed cause of death?

Real sad to hear the news. Big fan. Was hoping to see her when ever she came back to do a US tour.

Seen a good bit of her shows on video, without fail she would have to step off stage for a few seconds every few minutes, one time she didnt even bother and just pulled a lil bullet (coke snifing device that allows for quick bumps with no spill) from her bee hive hair, turned her head and took a bump . . . at a show she knew was being videotaped for production.

Sad but not unexpected.

Dumb statement. Drug addicts deserve pity. Terrible disease.

[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]I cant help but think its kind of funny when people call drug and alcohol abuse a disease. Its like lets say you were dying of MS and someone said yeah i know how tough that is, my dad had a disease he died of.... he was a cocaine addict. Its got to be hard on your family too. [/FONT][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana] [/FONT][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]I think people label drug abuse a disease because it makes it easier for them to apply pity and cope with a friend, family member, or famous person that abuses drugs. Either way i feel bad for Amy Winehouse and her family and wish them well. I was a fan of her artistry (i also think its funny when people call singers artist) and i am sad she died. Who knows maybe it will turn out that she didnt even die of drugs. [/FONT][/COLOR]

Drug and alcohol abuse are not diseases; however, the underlying addiction that causes such abuse - preventing the addict from stopping behavior she knows is killing her - is a disease under any definition of that word. I think the argument Saden was trying to make is that people suffering from drug addiction are more culpable in their own affliction than people battling something like MS. I think that's pretty hard to argue with, since drug addiction involves an at least ostensibly voluntary behavioral component, whereas MS does not. But to then conclude that a brilliant and talented drug addict who dies before she is 30 should be denied our pity because she played a mechanical role in her own demise is, I think, dumb. (And I know Saden said this.)

Nice little article on addiction as disease, holla: [url=http://thechart.blogs.cnn.com/2011/07/26/addiction-the-disease-that-lies/]Addiction: The disease that lies The Chart - CNN.com Blogs[/url]
