Amy Winehouse has declared she has finally kicked her drug addiction after falling for her reported new beau Joshua Bowman while on vacation.
The Rehab hitmaker escaped to the paradise island of St Lucia in December and has since been snapped by paparazzi cuddling up to the clean-cut former rugby player and looking healthy.
And she insists she is so happy spending time with Bowman she hasn’t been tempted to use any drugs – and is even considering staying in the Caribbean permanently.
She told Britain’s News Of The World, “I haven’t touched anything since I arrived and I feel the best I have in years… I love it here and have never felt so happy. In fact I don’t think I’m ever going home. I was supposed to go last week but I thought f**k that, I’m staying!”
She added: “Especially as I met Josh here. He couldn’t be more different from my husband, which is not a bad thing. Blake looks like me, a right mess. But Josh is all handsome and clean and that’s what I love about him. People might think we haven’t got anything in common but I get on like a house on fire with all his family despite them being so posh. When I’m with Josh I don’t need drugs to feel good because he makes me feel so amazing.”
And Winehouse admits she was terrified she would meet her end after seeing photos of herself looking emaciated in London last year.
She added: “Before I came out here I looked at a photo of myself in the newspaper and was horrified. My skin was a spotty mess and I was so pale and skinny. I thought to myself, ‘Girl, you got to sort yourself out or you’ll be dead soon.’ I was depressed, doing drugs and had no life in me at all. Coming here has changed everything. We’re having a great time together along with all Joshs family and friends and I just don’t want the holiday to end.
“Home is hell for me. I’ve escaped from it. There are drugs everywhere. I can’t do anything without everyone thinking I’m off my head on drugs, although half the time they were right, I was.
“But here I feel so calm and peaceful and for the first time I can definitely say I am off the drugs.”
And her new health kick and romance have inspired her to consider recording again.
She said: “Before I got here I was just like a zombie most days. But here I’ve got new zest for life as I’m off the drugs. It’s made me feel like concentrating on my career again. Most nights I’ve done a few songs on the piano for a laugh but I’m starting to think about recording again. I want to capture how happy I am right now in some new songs.”
