Amy Winehouse Trades Drugs for Alcohol

Singer Amy Winehouse may be off drugs, but just like anybody else that suffers from substance abuse, she has a new addiction: alcohol.

Wino's father Mitch is speaking out about his daughter’s new addiction, and why he still fears for her life.

According to, he said, "After she almost died twice from drug related problems, to see her walking, smiling - she has progressed so much. But now, if it's alcohol instead of hard drugs - I don't think I can go through that again.

"I've decided to distance myself, and whatever happens, happens. It's her life. It's her career. It's her decision."

Mitch has basically relocated to St. Lucia to try and keep a watchful eye on Amy, but she's so unpredictable, we're sure it's taking a huge toll on his health as well.

His attempt to get Amy off drugs worked, but can he get her to stop drinking? What advice would you give Mitch?
