Don't do it at home: Alcohol withdrawal can be very dangerous, with seizures, confusion, heart problems and loss of contact with reality as possible problems. See a doctor about going into the hospital for medically supervised withdrawal from alcohol, or possibly doing outpatient withdrawal. It's best if you can find an addiction medicine specialist (www.Asam.Org or www.Aaap.Org) to help you.

Alcoholism: With hope. I would advise that this be done under medical supervision. With a plan to immediately enter into a treatment/recovery program where the fellowship of being with others suffering from alcoholism is allowed to grow. For it is this fellowship that may save your life and help you grow into the kind and authentic human you are designed to be sober.

Drug withdraawal: Depends on the power of the drug, and the duration of time talking it + amount consumed in a certain of time (daily quantity, usually) and your state of heath prior to sudden cessation, the withdrawal will be more or less severe. Some high dose users can fall into seizures, which can kill, others who did not used to high a dose, neither too long, will suffer less.
