A year ago I quit because I was taken to jail...I had been drinking daily for 2 years. When I was in jail I had no withdrawals except some cold sweats. But 5 weeks ago I was released and resumed my drinking...it seemed my tolerance never changed since last time...I quit the other day and on the same night, I started experiencing massive alcohol withdrawals(I think). I have everything on the list right now...but the one thats getting to me the most is the suicidal thoughts(i actually tried!) Ive never had those thoughts ever, even though I have anxiety and depression sometimes...im wondering if im getting withdrawals this time because of the so-called "kindling" effect? meaning once you quit and start and then quit, the withdrawals are worse...im really afraid of these sudden feelings of hopelessness and suicide...does anyone think this is delirium tremens? (the most advanced stage of withdrawal)
