Alcohol Withdrawal Can Be Life-Threatening
You might believe that because alcohol use and abuse are so common, that alcoholism is something that’s easy to overcome, and be tempted to try the “cold turkey” method. As the first, crucial step towards alcohol addiction treatment, detox varies from person to person, and so does the severity of symptoms you can experience. Without proper medical supervision and care, some of these symptoms can even result in death.
Early Alcoholism Withdrawal Symptoms
Early alcohol withdrawal symptoms can manifest within hours to a few days after an individual stops drinking alcohol. These symptoms are a result of the body’s adjustment to the sudden absence of alcohol and can vary in severity depending on the person’s level of alcohol dependence. In some cases, early alcohol withdrawal can progress to more severe symptoms.
- Appetite Loss
- Nausea & Vomiting
- Rapid Heart Rate
- Muscle Tics
- Shaky Hands
Severe Alcoholism Withdrawal Symptoms
Severe alcohol withdrawal symptoms, also known as delirium tremens (DTs), can occur in individuals who have been heavy drinkers for a prolonged period and abruptly stop drinking. Symptoms of DTs can appear within three to five days after the last drink and can include:
- Agitated, Violent Mood Swings
- Muscle Tremors
- Extreme Confusion
- Seizures & Convulsions
- High Fever
These symptoms can be life-threatening and require immediate medical attention. DTs are a medical emergency, and individuals experiencing these symptoms should seek medical assistance right away.
