It depends: It depends on how much you drank and how long you have been drinking. It could last several hours to a few weeks. After heavy, prolonged use, you are at risk of hallucinations and seizures which could continue as delirium after 3 days and peak in 5 days. So hopefully, you haven't been drinking six 20 packs of beer a day for more than 10 years.
