I have been a drinker for quite a number of years, heavily since the last three years. A couple of pegs in the morning, two more between breakfast and lunch, two more after lunch and so on. I would not drink too much at once and nobody even noticed that I was high. I got to a point when I could not even do basic jobs without a peg. That’s when I decided to stop, tried for a long time but could not even last 4 hours. Oddly when I could not drink and would act and look crazy my wife would ask me, are you drunk. I finally got myself to a remote place, thought ill have my last big drink and stop. Half way through, I was filled with remorse and poured the bottle down. That was five days ago, the first two days were horrible, I could not sit, could not stand, anxiety, shivers, tremors, fear, nausea, vomiting, insomnia etc. I could not even hold down water, I gulp a sip and it would come right back out. I then got lucky, access to alcohol but resisted. Felt confident and decided to through with it. Day three all the vomiting was gone, anxiety/fear/nausea dropped. The day was wonderful, I ate very well, never had such a wonderful day in a long time. Had some decent sleep. Just as I thought the withdrawal was behind me. I started getting Body Tremors, very mild ones though. And in the night I started hearing faint singing, went out to see who the hell is playing music at this time of the night, It was silent outside. That was auditory hallucinations. They were gone in a short while and then I slept. Today morning was great, except slight shaking of hands, after a good breakfast, I thought well and left for office. All fine at office as well but then once again I hear faint singing.
Bodily I feel fine, just slight hand shaking, occasional slight body tremors and had two auditory hallucinations so far. Do you think I should go see a doctor. Can the withdrawal symptoms get worse after getting better.
I don’t do drugs, just cigarettes. Any advice would be helpful.
