Alcoholics may experience a range of emotions when they stop drinking, including anger, irritability, and mood swings. This can be due to the physical and psychological effects of alcohol withdrawal, as well as the emotional and mental toll of quitting a substance that has been used to cope with stress and difficult emotions. However, not all alcoholics will experience anger when they stop drinking, and individual experiences may vary. It’s important for individuals who are struggling with alcohol addiction to seek professional help and support to manage the physical and emotional effects of withdrawal and to develop healthy coping mechanisms for managing emotions in recovery.
