Could Amy Winehouse’s cause of death been lack of alcohol?

Insiders have claimed that Amy Winehouse’s untimely death may have been brought about, because she suddenly stopped drinking.

Coroners have not yet confirmed the official cause of death of the ‘Rehab’ hitmaker, however, some medical sources have speculated that if she had tried to stop boozing after many years of sustained alcohol abuse, she may have went into shock or a seizure, which could have led to her tragic passing.

A source said: “Abstinence gave her body such a fright they thought it was eventually the cause of her death.”

Before Amy’s funeral, some had claimed that she was embroiled in a massive drink and drugs binge in the days leading up to her death, but speaking this week, her father Mitch Winehouse has insisted that actually, the opposite was true.

The source added to The Sun newspaper: “He has wanted everyone to know that he, her boyfriend Reg Traviss and her manager believed it was actually the complete opposite.

“He said doctors had told Amy to gradually reduce her intake of alcohol and to avoid bingeing at all costs. Amy told him she couldn’t do that. It was all or nothing and she gave up completely.

“Mitch said the shock of giving up, after everything she had been through over a bad few years, was just too much for her to take.”

A post-mortem was carried out on the singer’s body on Monday, but the results came back as inconclusive and medical staff ordered extra histology and toxicology tests, the results of which could take several weeks to come in.

Police have now begun probing into what Amy was between 8pm on Friday night (22.07.11) and 4pm the next day when she was discovered deceased by one of her security guards.

A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: “She had a chaotic lifestyle and often she would head out late at night or even in the early hours of the morning to see friends.

“No one really knows what she did after she was checked on by her doctor at 8pm and before she was found dead at 4pm the next day.

“There is a possibility she left her home at some point during the evening, and some of her friends believe she may have headed out later.”
