Grieving Mitch, 60, has also told how hard it is to cope with the tragic death of the singer who died of alcohol poisoning aged just 27 last year.
The former cabbie blames Fielder-Civil for getting his daughter hooked on drugs and says he never could understand why she fell for the former heroin addict.
He said: “It wasn’t as if he brought much good into her life, or so it seemed to me.”
Their relationship means he cannot listen to Amy’s most successful album Back to Black because it charts the ups and downs of her life with Fielder-Civil.
In his memoirs, he also says he prefers her first jazzy album Frank.
In his book, out next week, Mitch releases dozens of letters that reveal his tender relationship with his daughter.
Loving … Mitch Winehouse with daughter Amy
One note — written on Valentine’s Day 2003 — reads: “Dear Daddy, I love you so much and can’t wait to see you again in a few weeks.”
Amy, who was 19 at the time, added: “I’m working, and I haven’t spent a penny. a few thousand dollars have gone, but no pennies as such.”
Mitch also recalls his daughter as a girl writing into a notebook phrases that later turned up in songs and his pride as her singing talent became evident.
But most of the book is about her continuous cycle of attempted recoveries and relapses as she battled drug and alcohol addiction.
He also reveals his daughter suffered from stage fright throughout her career and had breast enlargement surgery more than a year before her death. he also tells that she was considering plastic surgery on her nose.
Ex-husband … Blake Fielder-Civil
Mitch also writes about her strong will, saying: “Long before Amy was an addict, no one could tell her what to do.
“Once she became an addict, her stubbornness just got worse.
“There were times when she wanted to be clean, but the times when she didn’t outnumbered them.”
Amy married Fielder-Civil in 2007 but the pair divorced in 2009. some friends believe after that she grew to dislike singing the songs on Back to Black because they reminded her of him. They reckon that was one reason she drank so much before she performed.
Tape of a drunken Winehouse stumbling through a set months before she died became a great embarrassment to her after it spread widely on the internet.
Alcohol was trouble because it was freely available and she could drink wherever she liked, mostly without public criticism, writes her father, who worried “her illness might end up killing us both.”
