I tried to stop drinking for a day and I just suddenly felt numb. I couldn't also sleep or feel sleepy. From the next day I couldn't eat for 3 days and my situation got worse. Now I'm experiencing low potassium in my blood. If I became angry my whole body shakes for no reason. To calm myself I need to drink beer. I also want to stop being alcoholic, but I don't know how to deal with it. I am looking for someone to help me with my condition. I’m only 22 years old and I need to work for my family.

I stopped drinking over 30 days ago. I experienced mild delirium tremens and a lot of anxiety for a week or more. I drank upwards of 24 beer daily. Sometimes drinking rum straight with ice as a chaser. I did this for 16 years nonstop not counting the on and off heavy drinking since the age of 14. I am currently going on 57.
