Re: The Perils of Alcohol Withdrawal

By this post, I don't mean to discourage anyone who wants to stop drinking, just alert them to the dangers. If you do it on your own, it's best to ramp down your drinking over a few weeks until you can stop without any of these withdrawal symptoms manifesting themselves.

Otherwise, you can enter an inpatient or outpatient program that prescribes you some type of benzodiazepine until your heart rate returns to normal. If you are in an outpatient program, they'll likely test you regularly to make sure you are no longer drinking alcohol.

She was told that it was. There was just a moment of silence before
the woman proceeded bravely on. "Well, I'm wondering, then, how serious my
condition is. This prescription is marked `NO REFILLS'".
