One of the most lethal drugs is alcohol, which kills more individuals than all other drugs combined. It is the third leading preventable cause of death in the United State
The overwhelming side-effects of excessive alcohol consumption lead to loss of jobs or school expulsion, draining finances, tearing apart families, and may result in arrest. Not only does it cause permanent health deterioration but also leads to death. Alcohol use does not need to happen for a long time for severe consequences to happen. An episode of binge drinking or the first attempt at driving drunk can lead to death
Alcohol dependence and alcohol abuse can be classified as an alcohol use disorder. People are determined to have a severe, moderate, mild, or alcohol use disorder depending on the symptoms they exhibit.
Symptoms of alcohol withdrawal
The nervous system controls blood pressure, breathing, motor nerves, heart rate, digestive glands, motor function, muscles. Alcohol is a depressant that makes the nervous system act slowly.
Therefore, the nervous system adjusts to the presence of alcohol in the body. Once it is no longer present, the nervous system gets into a hyperactive state.
This can result in withdrawal symptoms like:
- Restless, irritable
- Mood swings
- Anxiety or depression
- Insomnia, nightmares
- Shaky, jumpy
- Body ache, fever
- Nausea, vomiting
- Sweating, clammy skin
- Racing heart, high pulse rate
Alcohol withdrawal can be severe resulting in delirium tremors (DTs), which can cause extreme confusion, hallucinations, seizures, heart attack, or stroke. DTs deeply influence how the brain controls breathing and the circulatory system. Moreover, it can lead to serious changes to the heart rate and blood pressure.
It is prudent to note that withdrawal symptoms do not occur at the same time. Furthermore, not every person experiencing withdrawal gets all symptoms. Primary symptoms start at 5-10 hours after the last drink, even though other symptoms may be experienced over the next couple of days. Most symptoms decrease in a period of 5-7 days. Alcohol detox can be hazardous and should be performed under medical supervision.
