Feb. 10, 2024  – Amy Winehouse was tipsy but still able to hold a conversation. Dr. Christina Romete, the soulful British pop singer’s general practitioner, had been treating Winehouse for several years amid her rollercoaster struggles with alcohol and hard drugs. Amy Winehouse had always been open about her substance use issues, to a point. “I do drink a lot,” she told the British television show “London Live” in 2006. “I think it’s symptomatic of my depression. I’m a manic depressive. I’m not an alcoholic, which sounds like an alcoholic in denial.” Addiction psychiatrist Dr. David Sack told ABC News around the time of Winehouse’s death that she may have “minimized the extent to which her life was impacted by drugs and alcohol.”
