Confirmed: Winehouse went too hard on the booze

She was five times the UK legal driving limit for grog, which stands at 0.08.

From someone who doesn’t mind a drink, I’m telling you that is waaaaay beyond drunk. I used to play with a portable breathalyser a while back when out on the town, and at best, I’d be able to manage two, maybe a bit over two times 0.08.

And that was really sh*tfaced.

Five times? It beggars belief.

Recording a verdict of misadventure, Coroner Suzanne Greenway said the singer had 416mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood – more than five times the UK driving limit.

At 200mg per 100ml of blood, someone would lose control of their reflexes; 350mg is considered a fatal level. There was no trace of drugs in the singer’s body.

I believe her when she says she didn’t want to die, but crikey, 416mg and I’m surprised she didn’t spontaneously combust.

Surely you're thinking something...
