Alcohol Detox During and After

Is alcohol withdrawal dangerous? This is the question that many people are asking themselves before they make the decision to stop drinking. The simple answer to this question is this. Yes, alcohol withdrawal can be dangerous.

Determining how dangerous it can be will always depend on the amount of alcohol a person drinks and their unique body chemistry. This is why it is very important to seek the advice of a medical professional before quitting.

There have been several well documented cases of alcohol withdrawal turning deadly. Singer Amy Winehouse’s death was alcohol related. She made the decision that alcohol was a problem and decided to quit. She did manage to stay sober for a short time, but then went back to drinking and ultimately died of alcohol poisoning. Her abstinence helped to rid her body of toxins, but when she started drinking again, her body couldn’t take it.

The symptoms of alcohol withdrawal can range from any of the following:

  • Vomiting
  • Nausea
  • Tremors
  • Sweats
  • Hallucinations
  • Convulsions
  • Seizures

These symptoms don’t always manifest, and some people never have any symptoms at all, but not seeking professional help during the initial alcohol detox phase can make the situation take a turn for the worst.
