Amy Winehouse’s parents, Mitch and Janis, are proud to say that their daughter has shaken off her drug addiction, but they are still worried sick because of her alcohol addiction, which is still existing. Amy’s parents are aware of the fact that it is probably the substance in itself, which makes Amy unable to stop drinking. When Amy was on a drug rehab, she still could not let go of the booze. Mitch and Janis are relieved to say that Amy will divorce Blake Fielder-Civil very shortly. It will be better for the two addicts to be separated, in order to get control over their drinking habits again.
Personal reaction to this topic:
It must be heartbreaking for parents to deal with a child who has a serious health condition. People who are in showbiz, like Amy, are constantly exposed to alcohol and drugs. And the pressure from the media must be very hard for them to handle. I think of Amy as a very talented musician and it shocked me when I saw some footage of her once, when she was sniffing cocaine on stage while performing. I do sincerely hope that she will be able to get her addiction in control again. But I think she has a strong personality so she should be fine in the end.
