I agree with Lainey. I'm sure Amy's under a lot of pressure to stay off the drugs. Trying to quit the booze on top of it might just be setting herself up for failure. Its not realistic. Maybe for her, small steps and taking one thing at a time will be the key to success . Also, as Lainey said, many people can learn to curb their drinking. With a lot of discipline, she may be able to do that. Only time will tell.
Also, remember she's dealing with an eating disorder. This puts even more pressure on her shoulders. Trying to overcome an eating disorder can be even more difficult than getting off the drugs. As a person who lived with anorexia, I can tell you, it's something that's with you all the time, even when you're "recovered". You can live without drugs, you can't live without food. So if she can get off the drugs first, she'll be able to focus on the other issues ie: alcohol, bulimia, etc. One step at a time. I wish her all the best.
