What does alcohol withdrawal feel like
My name is Kevin O'Hara and today I'm gonnabe asking the question: quot;What does alcohol withdrawal feel likeéquot; It actually feels as badly as you want itto feel. If you look on the internet, you'll come up with lists of symptoms, all rangingfrom sweaty palms and shaking and headaches, all the way up to death by alcohol withdrawal. To be honest, your withdrawal will feel likeYOUR withdrawal. That's about the size of it, it's all going to depend on how long youwere drinking for, how many years, what type of drink you were drinking, and how oftenyou were drinking it. It depends on your age,
your size, your physical fitness. But I tell you, mostly it's going to dependon what's going on up here how you perceive the alcohol symptoms. That's where it's goingto be really bad, or it's going to be where you really squash all those symptoms altogether. If you're the hypochondriac type, if you spendyour time looking on the internet for all the bad symptoms and you read books abouthow bad the symptoms can really get, then I'm sorry to tell you but a lot of those thingswill come true for you because you're making them true. What you think about and what goesthrough your head you can actually make
into reality just by thinking about it anddwelling on it. My one big symptom the one that really gotme this time was sleeplessness. I went for a while without being able to sleep properly probably 3040 days. I think it was mostly mostly, but it was partly my own fault.I sort of did a lot of damage up here in my head because I compared it to what I'ddone before. I'd given up alcohol before, for a year, about five years ago, and I couldn'tsleep for a month. I basically compared this time with last time, but they were two differentseparate occasions. One of the main things about the last occasionwas I wasn't giving it up completely. I had
every intention to go back on the beer again.This time, I knew I was never going back onto it, so it just wasn't the same thing. LikeI said, I defeated myself before I even started. The big trick is, to not even think aboutyour symptoms. Don't give them the time of day. Because you can only think about thesymptoms in one way and that's how they're going to affect you. Instead, you look atyourself and you think how good you're going to feel in the morning when you don't havea hangover anymore. Or how good you're going to feel and how fullyour wallet's going to be next week after you've stayed in and you haven't spent allyour money on alcohol.
How good you're going to feel in six months'time when you lost a bit of weight. How much selfrespect you will regain for yourselfwhen you've quit drinking when you see everyone else around you still poisoning themselves. That's the only way to look. Anyway, I hope that you got something outof the question. My name is Kevin O'Hara for Alcohol Mastery. Onwards and upwards!.
