If a person has been drinking heavily for a prolonged period of time, they can experience serious medical complications when they stop drinking. Withdrawal symptoms may develop within a few hours or may occur a few days after the person has quit drinking.

Delirium Tremens (DTs) is a withdrawal syndrome occurring in a person who has developed a dependence on alcohol.
