  5. When does alcohol withdrawal begin?
Asked: 2018-01-29 15:50:51
After my last alcoholic drink, when will I begin to feel withdrawal? I have been drinking for a while and I think it’s time for me to take a break. It is starting to interfere with my life.

Hey! I’ve been in your position. In my opinion, you will most likely start experiencing insomnia, shaking, anxiety, restlessness and cramping about 8 hours after the last drink. If you have been heavily abusing alcohol for a while now, I would definitely talk with your doctor before stopping completely.

It depends on how much you drank and for how long. Usually 8-12 hours depending on your status. When I got sober, I would start getting super sick around the 8 hour mark! It got so bad I had to go to the hospital. They sent me to a detox facility and I haven’t had a drink since. It’s been 9-months! Good luck!
