My mc started drinking regularly (enough to stay drunk about 50-75% of the time) three weeks ago. Now, due to a discovery she has made about people plotting against her who have also been enabling her to drink, she is highly motivated to quit. Prior to the 3 weeks, she wasn't much of a drinker. A series of traumatic events occurred which propelled her into it. Anyway, my question is, what sorts of withdrawal symptoms would she experience? How severe? Does the fact that she hasn't been drinking for longer than 3 weeks make a difference?
Thanks in advance for your input, I greatly appreciate it!
ETA: How long would the worst of the withdrawal last? Are there phases? I imagine that at first she would be able to go without a drink for a while before the symptoms would hit her. Is that accurate?
