You may have tried to stop on your own and failed. Remember, it was not you who failed, it was the method you used that failed you.
Alcohol detox is extremely difficult and can even be life-threatening. “Delirium tremens,” a severe form of withdrawal, can cause hallucinations, agitation, fever, confusion and even seizures. Cardiac symptoms, such as palpitations and arrhythmia, can occur. Common withdrawal symptoms include depression, anxiety, fatigue, shakiness, difficulty concentrating, headaches, mood swings, sweating, nausea, vomiting, insomnia and/or nightmares, vomiting and loss of appetite.
