Wow: That amount of drinking is certainly not good for you and shows that you have a problem and need professional help. If not for the drinking alone, then help coping with why you are drinking that much. If you just started tat drinking you won't go through physical withdrawal but please seek help.

Can happen: All depends on your history, tolerance and how you react to withdrawals. Local er or pcp can help.
