  5. How long do alcohol withdrawal shakes last?
Asked: 2018-06-06 08:22:20
I'm putting every ounce of energy I have into getting sober. I didn't prepare for shaking when I let up on alcohol. Do the alcohol withdrawal shakes last long?

The shakes come on around 8 hours after you’ve had your last drink, although you may have been experiencing them daily and not have noticed so much when drinking heavily. Having the shakes lasts around 2 weeks, but can continue because of the emotional withdrawal – as a symptom of anxiety or stress.

The shakes are part of your body withdrawing from the alcohol, and can be intense, but usually go after a couple of weeks.
