  5. Can an Alcoholic die from not drinking?
Asked: 2018-12-10 19:20:53
I was wondering how much a person has to drink daily to die from not winding down of heavy use? Is it possible?

Everyone's body is going to respond differently to alcohol withdrawal, but typically it takes a person to be extremely dependent on alcohol for long periods of time to experience a fatal detox.

It doesn't happen very often and when it does happen, it's usually someone who's been drinking a lot for a long period of time. Amy Winehouse's family thinks she probably died of alcohol withdrawal seizures. But no one really knows for sure. That's why it's so important for anyone who wants to quit drinking to go to a professional detox facility. They have doctors that monitor you while you detox and they can help relieve some of the most uncomfortable symptoms too. Don't let this scare you away from quitting. Just do it the right way-with a professional detox facility.

Thanks Kayla and Madison for the advice. I tried to stop for 3 days and it was really intense. My heart was freaking out. I think I am going to call this number on this website and figure out my options. Wish me luck everyone.
