The most common addiction in the world.

General Information:

Ethyl alcohol, or ethanol, is an intoxicating ingredient found in beer, wine, and liquor. Alcohol is produced by the fermentation of yeast, sugars, and starches. It is a central nervous system depressant that is rapidly absorbed from the stomach and small intestine into the bloodstream. A standard drink equals 0.6 ounces of pure ethanol, or 12 ounces of beer; 8 ounces of malt liquor; 5 ounces of wine; or 1.5 ounces (a "shot") of 80-proof distilled spirits or liquor (e.g., gin, rum, vodka, or whiskey)

Drug Specific Withdrawal Symptoms & How heroin detox center can help

Seizures occur in about 5% of people withdrawing from alcohol. They occur early (usually 7–24 hours after the last drink), are grand mal in type (ie, generalised, not focal) and usually (though not always) occur as a single episode. Delirium tremens (“the DTs”) is the most severe form of alcohol withdrawal syndrome, in need of a medical emergency. It usually develops 2–5 days after stopping or significantly reducing alcohol consumption. The usual course is 3 days, but can be up to 14 days.
