Washington, Jun 28 : English singer Amy Winehouse insists that "boredom" and feelings like she has "nothing to live for" was what got her into drug and alcohol problems.
Winehouse revealed in a rare interview with Rolling Stone magazine, that her husband Blake Fielder-Civil had been jailed on charges of assault and perverting the course of justice in November 2007, which has left her feeling like her life wasn't worth living.
In order to get her life going again, the Grammy award-winning singer subsequently cancelled her U.K. tour and ended up in rehab in an attempt to kick her addictions.
She was also last week (beg16Jun08) treated at a London hospital for traces of emphysema.
And Winehouse blames her downward spiral into drink and drugs on her current unhappy state.
"To be honest, my husband's away, I'm bored, I'm young. I felt like there was nothing to live for. It's just been a low ebb," Contactmusic quoted her as saying.
But the star insists that although she was treated at a London clinic in March (08), she doesn't feel like she has fully completed a rehab programme.
"I've never been to rehab, I mean, done it properly. I'm young, and I'm in love, and I get my nuts off sometimes. But it's never been like, 'Amy, get your life together'," she added.
