Symptoms of Wine Withdrawal

It is recommended that adult males consume no more than two four-ounce glasses of wine per day; women are limited to one due to their generally smaller size and the speed with which they metabolize the wine. American culture can sometimes blur the lines between acceptable wine consumption and abuse. When wine drinkers start to experience withdrawal symptoms like headache, sensitivity to light and irritability. As drinking progress and these more minor symptoms are ignored, they can become more serious and include seizures, convulsions and much more. Wine withdrawal must be addressed immediately to prevent the symptoms from getting worse the body from sustaining more damage.

Cycle of Wine Withdrawal

Wine withdrawal manifests shortly after a person develops tolerance to drinking. It could take a month, a year or longer; however, once tolerance actually does develop, it can take the form of various physical and psychological symptoms, ranging from mild to severe. The longer wine abuse persists untreated, the worse withdrawal is likely to be. Just like symptoms, the timeline of wine withdrawal is different for everyone. Some people exhibit symptoms about eight hours after the first drink. Symptoms generally peak between 24-72 hours and in this time period, and decrease between five to seven days. The onset of withdrawal usually corresponds with the level of dependency.
