I had experience with drugs withdrawals and they lasted for about a week but it could last longer. It is the same with alcohol. How harsh are your husband’s withdrawal symptoms?
Has he been a heavy drinker or not?
Can you explain what kind of symptoms he’s having?

I understand what he must be going through. Be strong and be beside him although he may act as if he didn’t need you.

6-10 days is BS. I am 20 days dry and I feel like sh*t. I threw up from the 6th to 10th day! The symptoms are waning, but I still am tired all the time, depressed, almost uncontrollable urges. They are getting better though, so tell him to keep it up.

P.S. I also quit smoking at the same time so that might have made things worse.

It took me a month before I was feeling better and I was a really heavy drinker! The only was I got through it was the love and supports of my friends! I believe u can still be sick if u smell the stuff!!

Hi,

I am a recent joiner. I was recently dumped by my former fiance 1 week before xmas who suffers from alcoholism. I was also made aware that there is such a thing as drydrunk syndrome, I was wondering how long this symptom can actually last, and what are the signs of the person going through it. Besides of which I have experienced and seen alot of anger within him, Is this normal?

Hi,

My name is Eve and I am a new member with some questions. I was recently engaged to my fiance who suffers from alcoholism. He dumped me 1 wk before xmas of this year. But alot of stuff does not make sense, he was soo angry and full resentments towards me, he even threatened to phone the police over dropping off a xmas gift. This I know is not him. Is there such a thing as drydrunk syndrome? And if so how long does it last?

Sincerely, Eve

Hi,

I cannot believe how frustrating it is not to really know what is going on. I know it must be hard for him to be going through the AA program and all, I am still trying to cope with the disengagement, I am soo confused, and I know that I have to be patient if I want answers, who ever said patience is a virtue ought to be shot LOL.

On day 9 and it has been pretty tough. I am pretty much doing it alone. wife, family, friends ect. Have no clue what I am going thru and probably don't want me to quit. I try to tell everyone that I am done drinking and no one seems to believe me. My wife tried to buy a case of beer for me today at costco for the 4th of July and I almost lost it. Having a major problem convincing people to take me seriously. Any suggestions.
