    The Sun is reporting that Amy Winehouse died because she quit drinking too fast, too soon. Damned if you do, damned if you don't, it would seem.  Sources are saying that the beehived singer ignored doctors' advice to step back gradually from her heavy drinking and went cold turkey in the past month. Given this approach, it was too much of a shock to her system and her body could not handle it, so she died.

    That sounds a bit like junk science to us, and a tabloid trying to come up with a story to fall in line with Winehouse's father Mitch's statements to the press that his daughter was the happiest and healthiest she had been in years. He told the press she had quit drugs, was weaning herself off the bottle, writing music and in love with her new boyfriend.

    Many fans and the media jumped to the conclusion that Winehouse died of an overdose, given her past problems. However, she was found dead in her bed, with no drug paraphernalia nearby.

    The toxicology reports are due back in a matter of weeks.

    What do you think of this story about Amy Winehouse's death?
