This is your brain on drugs…
As the before and after photo above of British singer Amy Winehouse so powerfully illustrates, drugs can wreak physical havoc on a person. She was never that attractive to begin with, and when her drug binges exacted their toll, she became absolutely hideous.
But physical deterioration due to drugs is not limited solely to personal appearance--the brain, too, suffers as the continued use of drugs fries millions of brain cells into oblivion. In poor Amy Winehouse's case, not only did drugs disfigure her to the point of becoming severely grotesque, drugs also made her as dumb as a post.
From MTV in the UK, we find out that Amy is planning a romantic getaway to Cuba to rekindle the romance between her and her estranged husband. Why Cuba? Well, both Amy and her husband have become avid cigar smokers, but what really titillated the two or three remaining brain cells in Amy's head (that estimate might be too generous) was the "romance of Cuba."
Amy Winehouse is reportedly taking estranged hubby Blake Fielder Civil on holiday to Cuba.
The Rehab singer, who got back together with Blake after they divorced last August, has allegedly decided to mark their reunion with a romantic trip to Havana once his court ordered curfew has ended.
Amy is thought to have chosen Cuba as their chosen holiday destination after the couple have found a new interest in cigar smoking.
A source told The Sun: "Smoking cigars is their new thing. It all started when Amy bought a pack of Romeo y Julieta for Blake, because she thinks they're also tragic lovers."
"Amy and Blake have been spending their time reading up on the history and the culture behind them and followed it to Cuba. She thinks there's a kind of romance to it and would love to go there with Blake."
Nothing like a holiday on a slave plantation being waited on by well-behaved slaves to spark some romance. Throw in some heroin, cocaine, ecstasy, copious amounts of alcohol, and some crack as an aperitif, and you have a real love story in the making.
The only thing I can tell you, kids, is SAY NO TO DRUGS!
