I certainly had to fight the physical withdrawal symptoms. Before I quit I was waking up at night in panic / sweats and would drink.
I cold turkied and muscled through withdrawals. I planned on a rough 3-5 days and that's what I got. Still wasn't "fun" after that, but things started getter better.
I remember thinking at that time... That was the first time in years that things were better than the day before.
