Will I experience alcohol withdrawal if I stop now? Feeling paranoid.

Lately I've been binge drinking wine the past 17 days. My poison of choice is Cabernet Sauvignon 13% alcohol. I experienced a pretty painful Gabapentin withdrawal in February 2020 which I heard is similar to alcohol withdrawal. So please understand I'm a bit paranoid about experiencing something painful like that again. Below is a list of the days I've been drinking and how much.

~Cabernet Sauvignon 13%~

July 2020

23rd - 500ml

24th - 500ml

25th - sober day

26th - 500ml

27th - sober day

28th - 500ml

29th - 500ml

30th & 31st - sober days

August 2020

1st - sober day

2nd - 500ml

3rd - 500ml

4th - sober day

5th - 500ml

6th - 500ml

7th - sober day

8th - 500ml

You're fine dude.
At the very most you'll experience some mild morning shakes that will go away in a few days. I've been a hardcore alcoholic for almost a decade and I just went a week sober with hardly any effect. That being said I have been cutting down from a handle to a flask every day but regardless. If you are that worried just taper yourself down, but I can promise you that you are not going to experience life threatening withdrawal from a couple weeks of drinking.

Thank goodness. I noticed on the 9th (the day after my last day of drinking) that my stomach was hurting a bit, but after using the toilet a few times towards my bedtime it went away. Today is the 10th around 2am in the morning as I type this and I've been having trouble sleeping. Took 0.5mg of a xanax in hopes it will help me sleep. Will things get a bit easier each day or will it get worse?

>that my stomach was hurting a bit
That's kinda an everyday thing for a drinker, alcohol is pretty hard on your stomach lining but its resilient. Eat some fibre and drink some water and you'll feel better.
>Will things get a bit easier each day or will it get worse?
It'll get easier, especially seeing as how you haven't been drinking for long. Your body is probably just used to the alcohol to help it sleep. I wouldn't rely on xanax too much though, one addiction for another kind of thing. Try melatonin instead. Also some physical activity will help.

Don't worry about the Xanax, that's the one drug i totally respect and I only use it for the worse cases of insomnia. Like when I suffered through that hellish gabapentin withdrawal that lasted 10 days.

This is a big wake up to call to me however, I never want to touch alcohol ever again because the one thing I can't stand is insomnia. I know some people can handle it and feel goofy not sleeping but for me it feels like my mind and soul are being torn apart.

I hear you bro, I can personally be up for days on stims and function just fine but I know a few people who cannot function without sleep. My ex was one of them, chick would fucking tear my head off if she didn't get her 8 hours. You don't need to be afraid of the hooch until your family starts abandoning you and you start getting shakes and shit. Sounds like you can moderate, just leave it for special occasions and shit. The insomnia will go away, like I said I highly recommend melatonin if you haven't tried it. Works super good for getting a good nights sleep.

staying up for days on meth is very different from staying up for days while withdrawing from heroin/benzos/alcohol.

Can't speak for benzo or heroin withdrawal but I have had withdrawals from alcohol. Regardless though it sounds like OP's problem is insomnia and not withdrawal. Maybe its different for other people but in my experience you have to have a long time of alcohol abuse under your belt before you start getting the shakes.

Maybe the wd wouldn't be that bad then. I've been drinking every night for around 2 years (I'm never really sure exactly how long for obvious reasons) and this worries me as well. Think I'm stable at around 500ml of 37.5% a night. Pretty sure I wouldn't be sleeping without it even without wd though.
