  5. How long does severe alcohol withdrawal last?
Asked: 2018-01-12 07:47:16
I’m drinking while I’m writing this. That’s how bad of an alcoholic I am. I can only go couple of hours before my hands start to shake and I have to run to the bathroom. I’ve had seizures before when I tried to quit for too long, and I’m honestly scared to death to try living without alcohol. If I do manage to quit, how long should the withdrawals last?

: Alcohol is one of the only drugs that can actually require medical intervention when you try to stop using. People have suffered serious seizures or heart attacks when they tried to quit drinking, and you really need to go talk to your doctor.

Seriously, you need to get professional help. Alcohol withdrawals can be dangerous if you try to do it by yourself. Try going up to the emergency room and asking if they have any kind of rehab option or can help you go through a medical detox. Detox in the hospital is a heck of a lot better than trying to do it in jail. Trust me, I know. It took me almost a month to feel better after I took my last drink, but I was a lifelong alcoholic.
