How to Reduce Alcohol Withdrawal Symptoms | Alcoholism



Sharing buttons:

I often get calls from people who wanna

who would like to stop drinking but

really are afraid of having withdrawal

symptoms when that happens on my

recommendation to them is the main

recommendation is that they come in and

they see an addiction specialist to be

evaluated but I often get calls from

people who aren't in my local area and

may not have access to a medical

professional in that case there's there

are two ways of withdrawing of

minimizing the problems that may be

associated with alcohol withdrawal the

main one if you can see a physician is

to do so and you can be prescribed

different medications that will be

prescribed over the course of usually

four to seven days that within each day

the dose is lowered until you're off the

medication and then you'll be safe and

you'll be secure that you're not going

to experience withdrawal symptoms at

least n your knock it's certainly not

going to experience any withdrawal

symptoms that might be medically

dangerous when I say that even when one

gets off it you may still they may still

experience some anxiety

however if people do not have access to

a medical professional for whatever

reason then the way to withdraw from

alcohol is to taper down the amount of

alcohol that you are drinking so if

you're drinking extremely heavily you

may want to over the course of it depend

depending on how much you're drinking it

may be over the course of a few days and

may be over the course of a few weeks

each day reduce the amount of alcohol

that you're drinking and keep tapering

it down until you're not drinking at all

by doing so you will you will not

necessarily have any withdrawal symptoms

if you don't do that it's very dangerous

and sometimes it seems like

counterintuitive that you want to stop

drinking that well I should just stop

drinking but in fact I

I never want people to do that because

that can be medically dangerous so again

you want to each day reduce the amount

you're drinking

until you you stopped or get medication

from a physician which you taper down

until that stops and then you'll be safe

and secure so those are the two

techniques that you can use to stop

drinking and avoid any withdrawal

symptoms
