    It was reported on the news today, that the tox results came back from Amy Winehouse's autopsy, after she died way back on July 23.
    People were suspecting drugs, but it appears she died from alcohol poisoning....they found 3 empty vodka bottles in her room when they found her body, and the medical examiner said her blood alcohol level was 5 times the legal limit.
    She was apparently on a drinking binge, after trying to stop drinking.
    But that is the final ruling.......she died from binge drinking.

    Alcohol is a drug, and can be abused. Just because it is legal does not make it safe. Cigs are killers and it is legal to kill yourself that way.

    Happens every year on college campuses.

    People don't realize (or forget while drunk) that alcohol is a TOXIC SUBSTANCE.

    They drink more alcohol than their bodies can process and it kills them.

    Yes, I figured it was one or the other. But even tho the news people and others could offer their opinions, nothing was official under all the toxicology results came back.
    I had forgotten all about it, and figured it was just pushed to the side and I would never know anything more or hear anything more. But then...this.

    I don't like R&B but every once in a while someone comes along that really gets my attention like Sade Adu and Anita Baker. Amy Winehouse was one of them. What a great voice she had.

    I'm almost never sad to see any famous person die, Stevie Ray Vaughn was the last one that felt like a kick in the gut for me. But I really was sad to see her go. :frown:
