Signs of Alcohol Withdrawal 


When you have one glass of wine with dinner on occasion, alcohol is mostly harmless. When you have a bottle of wine before bed every night, there is a problem.

For those people who take their drinking too far, there can be serious consequences. Consistent drinking can lead to addiction, and once your body becomes dependent on alcohol, you will begin to experience the dreaded effects of alcohol withdrawal.

As providers of Christian-based addiction treatment in Pompano, we see signs of alcohol withdrawal every day in people whose drinking has gotten out of hand. While they are now taking steps to stop their drinking, there is no avoiding this negative consequence.

What Are the Signs of Alcohol Withdrawal?

There are many signs of alcohol withdrawal, and these symptoms can range in severity. From the early signs of alcohol withdrawal to the later and often more severe symptoms, alcohol withdrawal can take a toll on your mind, body, and soul. At Faith in Recovery, we want you to be able to recognize these issues so that you know when you need to get professional help.

Some of the first signs of alcohol withdrawal include:

  • Irritation
  • Headaches
  • Shaking or trembling
  • Nausea and sometimes vomiting
  • Increased heart rate
  • Sweating
  • Anxiety
  • Sleep troubles
  • Seizures
  • Slight confusion

These symptoms usually occur within the first few hours after drinking has stopped.

After 24 hours and beyond, an alcoholic may experience other symptoms. Some later signs of alcohol withdrawal include:

  • Hallucinations
  • Cravings
  • Mood swings
  • Seizures
  • Delirium tremors
  • Disorientation
  • Intense sweating
  • Insomnia
  • High fever

If this sounds like you, then our faith-based alcoholism treatment may be able to help.

Everyone is a little different, and the severity and symptoms of alcohol withdrawal can vary from person to person. Factors like age, health history, genetics, body mass, tolerance, amount of alcohol consumed, and severity of alcoholism can all play a role in the symptoms of alcohol withdrawal that someone will experience.

Although Jesus may have turned water into wine, heavy drinking is not healthy. If you experience any of these alcohol withdrawal symptoms, you should look into getting professional help.
