When alcoholics quit drinking, they may experience withdrawal symptoms such as tremors, anxiety, nausea, sweating, and insomnia. The severity of these symptoms depends on the length and severity of the alcohol use disorder. In some cases, medical intervention may be necessary to manage withdrawal symptoms and prevent serious complications such as seizures or delirium tremens. After the initial withdrawal phase, recovering alcoholics may also face challenges in maintaining sobriety and adjusting to a new lifestyle without alcohol. Support from family, friends, and addiction treatment programs can be important in achieving and maintaining sobriety.
