Amy Winehouse found dead

My first thought on hearing this news was “What a waste”. Not just a waste of her unique talent but of another human being ravaged by addiction. I suppose there may be some out there who will judge her as weak and lacking self-control but to me it just shows the power of addiction. No one chooses to be an alcoholic or drug addict – it chooses them. It notices a weakness and it steps right in. Unfortunately some people, naively it could be said, think that they can handle it. When they realise that they can’t and it has becomae a need instead of a choice they find that they are out of their depth and don’t know how to get back on track. One thing is for sure once someone finds themselves with a drink or drug problem, the choice is simple. Do something about it now or spend the rest of your life worrying about it. Addiction won’t let you go without a fight if you let it get a real hold!
