What You May Feel A Day or Two After Your Last Drink

If you are unable to keep from drinking for 24 to 48 hours, then you should reach out to a detox facility immediately. That said, the period of a day or two after drinking is considered by many to be the time during alcohol withdrawal when someone struggling with addiction is most at risk.

In turn, they find that misusing alcohol has placed a strain on so many of their relationships, with friends, family, co-workers, and the like.
