So I'm going on vacation and won't be drinking for 10 days. Other the past 3-4 months I've probably drank 4-12 drinks a day, every day. In the past I binge drank usually only on weekends and maybe once during the week...like black out binge drinking. Now, like I said, I'm going to go on a family vacation and am very worried I'll suffer severe withdrawal symptons, DTs, or seizures. Does my past and current drinking history seems like something that is going to cause me major problems in the next 10 days? edit update 12/28 @ 9am Yesterday wasn't too bad. I'm actually getting a cold, which certainly doesn't help matters. I had probably 1.5 units around 4:30pm. It was a little rough until around 10pm. Usually from 4-10 is my highest blood alcohol content as I usually pound 6 shots around 4:30 then take a few more throughout the night. My body didn't know what to do without it...heh. I was cranky, anxious, cold sweaty, and nauseous (couldn't really eat much food), but didn't feel anything serious or life threatening. Today I'll have like 3/4 unit of vodka and call it good. I feel OK this morning, not great but some is lack of sleep (got to bed too late) and this chest cold coming on. It kind of feels like I have a small hangover. I'm WAY better than yesterday morning though. I was having serious panic/anxiety/shakes/confusion yesterday. Would you assume the worst is over as long as I stay away from the sauce? I can say the worst part now is the craving, which is more mental than physical I think.
