I have been drinking daily and heavily for about 10 years. I've gone a day or two without in an attempt to quit. Today is my 8th day. The only affect I feel, and have felt, is sleepiness. Should I expect this? How long until I feel my normal energy levels back?
I too am currently going through withdrawal like you. I feel sooo tired during the day as well. It is really awful feeling this way. I am going on 3 weeks of this lethargy. I have read with some people it takes months to feel "normal." I will go a week without drinking then have 1-3 beers. I wonder by doing this will it start my withdrawal all over again? If anybody knows the answer to this please HELP!!!
i'm the same as nador, tiredness and lethargy must obviously be a symptom, i would doubt 1 to 3 beers would restart withdrawal symptoms, but whatever you normally would drink probably would set you back. mine was 16 to 20 beers and maybe a couple of shots
