What are the Symptoms of Alcohol Withdrawal?
When you suddenly stop consuming alcohol and remove it from your body, the physical symptoms of withdrawal may begin. The most common are mood swings or craving for a drink to calm one’s nerves; however, these can be emotionally exhausting as well so don’t feel bad if this doesn’t go away completely during detox!
When withdrawing from alcohol there will also likely come upon discomfort in some parts that were previously numbed by drinking (such as having migraines). It takes time after stopping use before all tissues have returned back into a normal state – but this process usually begins within 24-72 hours once complete with what appears to be.
Common alcohol withdrawal symptoms include:
- Shaky hands
- Vivid hallucinations
- Racing heart
- Excessive sweating
The alcohol withdrawal syndrome can be a very uncomfortable experience and remains one of the most common reasons many people struggle to stop abusing alcohol on their own.
