Alcohol poisoning.

So was it just booze? She just drank herself to death?

Just how much did she drink? I am a problem binge drinker (female) as are a lot of my friends. She must have been pouring it down the hatch to die from alcohol. Don't people usually puke/pass out before they die from poisoning?

Surely she must have taken a sedative or some other drug as well?

R5 = Kathie Le Gifford

Her autopsy showed her blood alcohol was more than 5 times the legal limit (UK limit) at the time of death.

I'm sure there are better articles to link, but I'm attaching one that I just found by searching one of the dozen (at least) threads that are still open on DL about this topic.

So how much did she drink? And what was it?

She had been off of booze for a while and relapsed. She drank as much as she used to drink on a good binge - but her body was no longer accustomed to that volume of alcohol and it killed her. This is why a relapse is so dangerous - many OD deaths are a result of relapse.

An addictionologist told me that binge drinking is far more harmful than daily drinking. He said you throw a toxic amount of alcohol into your liver, then you give it some time and let it begin recovering before you throw in another toxic quantity. It's a very dangerous way to drink. Relapsing would have the same effect.

It sounds like what yo-yo dieting does to your body, but with alcohol instead of food.

A lot of people die from seizures when they try to quit drinking.

FYI, alcohol withdrawal is the only withdrawal that can kill a person.

R12, I thought barbiturate withdrawal was sometimes fatal as well.

xanax withdrawal can be fatal too.

R13, as far as I know only an overdose can kill because it depresses the Central Nervouse System / respiratory system.

She'd actually kicked her drug habit but was somewhat reliant on alcohol to do it. She had been clean for a while but the poor girl had terrible emotional problems. Her father's book is quite good and very moving.

R17 - respectfully - screw you. Amy Winehouse was a brilliant singer/songwriter and her death is a real loss to music.

Drug addicts, alchoholics- tend to cross be crossed addicted- or at least rarely can stay clean of one when taking the other.

This is why I smoke weed

Not to mention tattoo parlors.
