I Would Rather Die Than Go to Rehab

July 23rd, 2011 by Michael Tabor
Poor Amy Winehouse wasn’t kidding when she sang out the lyrics “I don’t want to go to rehab….”. I knew her inevitable death would happen and happen soon if, she, Amy Winehouse did not get the help she so desperately needed.  She was only 27 years old and she looked like she was 77 (I am not exaggerating one bit as I sadly write this – go ahead and google images of her over the past month or so and you will see the result of a woman poisoning herself to an early death.)
I liked her. I liked her music, I thought the critically acclaimed, and commercially successful hit song “Rehab” was as good as it gets – original and catchy. However, sadly the song was for Amy – too close to home.
Everyone knew Amy was in trouble over the past few months (she was falling down and forgetting lyrics to songs) and her people even cancelled the rest of the tour dates in a fierce attempt to save her life by concentrating on nothing but getting Amy sober. I am no stranger to addiction and getting sober is perhaps one of the most difficult struggles a person will ever face. However, an addict or alcoholic is lucky to have a choice about whether or not to drink (regardless of how difficult it is) a person with terminal cancer does not have this luxury of choice.
Unless a person is an alcoholic or drug addict himself/herself, it is impossible to understand, empathize, or even fathom how agonizing getting sober is. Even though Amy Winehouse had a choice, she was unable to stop just like so many others in her position. So sad.
R.I.P. – Amy Winehouse.
