New here, wondering about C/T symptoms

Hi! So I recognized lately that I was most likely an alcoholic - I rarely drink to excess but I also haven't gone to bed without a couple of "night caps" in like several years - so I stopped drinking altogether about five days ago. No meetings, no tapering, just cold-turkey quit.

Has anyone else done this? Was it stupid of me?  

Since then I've had the strangest of symptoms. I had insomnia at first but only for the first couple of days. Since then my stomach hurts, I've been getting flushes and cold sweats, and my head feels like I have a sinus infection but without an actual infection of the sinuses.
