Being hopeful for so long and having faith that his infatuation with drinking alcohol would not cause his body to shut down, I dont know what I believe anymore. He drank viciously for about five years then quit but his body seems to be paying the price for his behavior. I want to know how exactly drinking alcohol affects the body.

Suddenly stopping alcohol intake could have effects such as anxiety, shakiness, sweating, seizures, seeing or hearing things, fast heart rate, a mild fever, and many other symptoms. If he wants to continue his sobriety than it may be best to find a doctor to talk about the different options available for him.

Drinking alcohol so heavily and then suddenly stopping could be causing his body to go in to detox. Alcohol detox is one of the more difficult detoxes to go through, and it can definitely be causing his body to go through a lot.
