Amy Winehouseâ€˜s cause of death may have been acute alcohol withdrawal, or so her family believes. According to her family, Amy Winehouse had totally stopped drinking during the last few weeks of her life. Her doctor had allegedly told her to gradually stop drinking, but her family claims the British singer ignored the advice and went cold turkey instead.
An unidentified friend of the Winehouse family allegedly told the Sun British tabloid that the singerâ€™s family believes alcohol withdrawal may have caused her death. â€œAbstinence gave her body such a fright they thought it was eventually the cause of her death,â€ the source said. People magazine has allegedly confirmed the family believes alcohol withdrawal may have contributed to Amy Winehouseâ€™s cause of death.
