Drinking is just not fun for me anymore, I’ve realized that it’s causing me more problems than it’s worth. I’ve got to come off it, but want to know how long I’ll feel bad for?

It depends on how long and how serious your drinking is. The first 2 days will be tough and then you will feel sick, tired, cold and shaky for up to a week after that.

Alcohol withdrawal comes in stages, and these can vary from person to person. First, around 12 hours after your last drink youll start feeling symptoms such as anxiety, nausea, loss of appetite and insomnia. From around 1 3 days in, youll find youre experiencing high blood pressure, a higher heart rate and perhaps even breathing problems. You could move to having seizures and hallucinations, which can last more than a week.

Alcohol withdrawal symptoms begin around anytime up to a day after you have had your last drink, and the most severe last around 7 days, but most people should be done after about a week. If youre concerned about how difficult it may be, you can ask your doctor for alcohol withdrawal medication to make it a little easier to bear.

How long it takes to withdraw from alcohol depends on how much and how frequently you have been drinking. If youve been drinking heavily, youll probably go into withdrawal after about 8 hours and it will peak around 3 days in but you may experience symptoms, such as an alcohol withdrawal headache, for a few weeks afterwards.

It really depends on how long you have been abusing alcohol, whether you are mixing it with other things and how much you have been drinking recently. The longer you have been drinking and the levels of drinking will have a direct impact on how long your detox lasts. You are normally looking at anywhere from 4 10 days, and your symptoms will also vary in severity. When you stop drinking, it is a huge shock to the body and can be very dangerous so for your own care, it could be wise to check yourself into a rehab facility to speed up your alcohol withdrawal timeline.

Alcohol withdrawal is pretty complex in that the physical symptoms will pass after around a week, but mentally it will take you a lot longer. Cravings can last years. Mainly, youre looking about a week of alcohol withdrawal. You can get some supplements to help with the symptoms, such as the alcohol withdrawal headache and nausea.

You’re gonna feel really bad for about 5 – 7 days and you should speak to a doctor or nurse to help you get through it and manage the pain.
