Default Amy Winehouse suffering from emphysema

Amy Winehouse has been diagnosed with early stage emphysema. Doctors have said if she doesn't stop smoking drugs (and I imagine regular tobacco as well), she will not only ruin her voice, but it could also be fatal.

This is a horrible disease. For her to have it at such a young age probably means she's looking at shortness of breath and using oxygen to breathe for a good part of her years. It will only make it worse if she continues smoking.

The report I saw didn't say it was the drugs that caused damage to her lungs, and they haven't been terribly exact about how much emphysema there is.

I have a feeling that is what was said because those are popular places to look for problems, based on her personal habits, but they might not be totally true. Smoking crack doesn't cause emphysema, and the news report I saw stated that it didn't.

Emphysema was around before smoking became the bane of all existence and was seen as an artifact of aging.

Let's not all jump on the band wagon without really analyzing what is being said, and why.

Well lets face it, her antics haven't really helped her.

I don't doubt one of the many drugs she puts into her body couldn't have caused it. I am not sure it really matters. How can you pitty someone who does this to themselves?

Emphysema is often caused by exposure to toxic chemicals and prolonged exposure to tobacco smoke, so I think it is fair to assume that an excessive lifestyle such as hers is in fact the cause.

I do not believe it fair to laugh at the situation, nor take any satisfaction. It was self-inflicted on the whole (although people can unintentionally get themselves into very bad habits), but I do wish her the best of luck in overcoming it.

Exactly, and then people going around saying that drugs barely cause anything bad to happen. But tbh, I don't even really know who this girl is. I've heard her name so many times but I don't think I've ever heard any of her songs...

I don't know the whole truth on Amy Winehouse, but come on, she's brought alot of negative attention on herself. If she is going to be in the public spot light, she is going to have to clean up her image.

Well to be honest she's lucky. The amount of drugs that girl does, she is lucky to still be alive!
