while everyone is different alot of people go through this for 2 or 3 days. Look up alcohol withdrawal symptoms if you have not yet. They are known to last like 12-72 hrs. Good reason to quit drinking. I know I am. 4 days now anyway. I already feel better than I have in a long time. Plus I have $60(probably more) extra dollars in my wallet that I would have spent since saturday. I figure I spent about $100 a week.
