What Happens To Your Body When You Stop Drinking Alcohol Suddenly!
There are plenty of reasons to quit drinking alcohol. Perhaps you can't party as hard as you once did, and the hangovers are getting worse. Maybe you've developed a beer belly. Possibly, there's a deeper issue at play, and you don't want your drinking to get out of hand before it's a problem—unless it already is and you just don't realize it. Whatever your circumstances are, you're here, and you're ready to kick the sauce. Let's break down what happens to your body once you quit drinking.
1. It may get worse before it gets better:
If you are a heavy drinker, you may not be out of the woods after 48 hours. Between 48-72 hours is generally when the onset of 'delirium tremens' occurs for some. Delirium tremens is sudden confusion that may be paired with hallucinations, shaking, irregular heart rate, and an increase in body temperature, so high that it can sometimes lead to seizures. If you are a heavy drinker, it is important to detox from alcohol under the supervision of a medical professional, as the withdrawal from quitting cold turkey can lead to death.
2. Physical symptoms will subside:
While hangover and withdrawal symptoms can be uncomfortable, and at times dangerous, the good news is, that after peaking at around 72 hours after the last drink, the last of these symptoms will generally start to subside. At this stage, your body begins to create a new equilibrium, that does not include alcohol and its effects.
3. You'll sleep better:
It may take a week or two, but after you quit drinking you'll ultimately sleep better. According to research, drinking increases brain wave patterns, that usually happen when you're awake. In normal deep sleep, the brain activity is in delta waves. Consuming alcohol causes brain activity during sleep to happen in alpha waves. Alpha waves are generally only seen in brain activity when we're awake, but resting. We all know that resting on the couch isn't the same thing, as getting a good night's sleep, so it's no wonder that people who drink regularly often feel tired and fatigued during the day.
4. You'll lose weight:
If you stop drinking and change nothing else about your diet, or level of activity, you're likely to lose weight. It's partially the simple concept of calorie counting—alcohol, especially beer, contains a lot of calories. A single IPA may have as many as 200 calories, and a margarita could have roughly 300. If you suddenly drop hundreds of calories a day, the pounds will drop off over time. Plus, you'll overeat less. Research shows a link between alcohol consumption and heightened senses. Being intoxicated sends the hypothalamus in the brain into high gear, which makes the body more sensitive to food smells. That, combined with alcohol's famous ability to remove inhibitions, leads to extra eating.
5. Your skin will look better:
Alcohol is a diuretic, meaning it causes water to exit the body. Not so much "cause" as "force." In short, it's severely dehydrating. It decreases the production of a hormone that helps the body absorb and hold water. This is why water is needed during a hangover. Over time, less water in the body leads to noticeable effects, such as parched and dry-looking skin, rosy red cheeks, dandruff, and eczema. After kicking the sauce, you should see a vast improvement in the quality of your skin.
