  5. How long does it take to get over alcohol withdrawal?
Asked: 2018-04-07 02:48:33
I’ve relied on alcohol for every single thing in life over the past ten years. All my highs and lows were toasted with a bottle. Now, I’m coming off it, how long will it take me to get over it?

The first few days will be very hard, and you’ll probably feel worst on day 3 with all the nausea, sweats, chills, spikes in your blood pressure and heart rate. Sleeping may be difficult and some people experience hallucinations. After around a week, you should be through the physical withdrawal but emotionally you will have to manage your cravings.

It’s a brave step, so well done. Get yourself into a rehab program or ask your doctor for help, as alcohol withdrawal can be tough, particularly the first week where you’ll feel really ill.
