The duration of alcohol cravings can vary depending on several factors, such as the severity of alcohol addiction, the length of time a person has been drinking, and the individual’s overall health status. In general, alcohol cravings can start as early as a few hours after the last drink and can last for several weeks or even months after quitting alcohol. However, the intensity and frequency of cravings typically decrease over time as the body adjusts to the absence of alcohol. It is important to seek support and treatment during this period to manage cravings and prevent relapse.
