I recently fell off the wagon after I quit for over a year after drinking heavily most of my adult life. I won’t go into why it happened I’ll only just say that I know very well I can put up with extreme stress without opening a bottle. I know that withdrawal varies from person to person but about how long would you say it lasts? My real problem is the shakes, I can’t do my job with them. It didn’t happen the last time but that was because of the meds my doctor put me on that I can’t afford now.
