Amy Winehouse Officially Diseased

6/22/2008 11:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Amy WinehouseHuge shocker -- crack, cigarette and who-knows-what-else smoking trainwreck Amy Winehouse has a lung disease.

Winey's father, Mitch, spilled the beans on her hospitalization, admitting the 24-year-old has contracted emphysema -- the same disease Johnny Carson died from when he 79.

Mitch told the Daily Mail, "With smoking crack cocaine and the cigarettes her lungs are all gunked up ... She's got 70 per cent lung capacity."

Amy has been in the hospital since collapsing in her London home last week.

Well, what are we supposed to say? Smokers are always the first to say that they don't want to hear preaching about their nasty habit, and it is their free choice to smoke. So when they get sick from it we are supposed to feel sorry for them? Not in my book.

This may be harsh and I don't wish ill will on anyone, but when will people grow up and realize that smoking is bad for you. I don't feel sorry for her and people need to wake up and realize yes, it can happen to you. We all think we are undestructable and that is not the case. I'm just sorry that no one has taken some serious actions to try and stop this destructive behavior before now.

Amy is a walking corpse. She has everything going for her and she's throwing her freaking life away. She was given a talent and it's a shame she can't see that and do something before she ends up SIX FEET UNDER!

Emphysema is created, not contracted -- my brother has it and it's not pretty. I hope this will encourage those of her fans who smoke to quit while there's still time.

I so hope she can rise above her problems. It must be hell to be such a tortured soul. I wish her only the best.
