Experiencing withdrawal symptoms when you stop drinking, such as trouble sleeping, shakiness, irritability, anxiety, depression, restlessness and nausea
The symptoms of alcohol withdrawal can be mild to severe, and they are not the same for everyone. Some people with alcoholism experience mild nausea, sweating and insomnia when they stop drinking; others experience seizures or convulsions. The most serious form of withdrawal is called delirium tremens (dts), which causes confusion, agitation, hallucinations and possibly death.
What kinds of withdrawal symptoms you have will depend on how much you drink and how long you’ve been drinking. For example, if an alcoholic has been consuming large amounts of alcohol daily for many years without any breaks from alcohol—and then suddenly stops drinking—they are likely to experience severe dts. On the other hand, if an alcoholic who has only consumed small amounts over a short period of time suddenly stops drinking then they may experience milder withdrawal symptoms such as nausea or sweating rather than dts.
