Depends on the cause: Different drugs are associated with different types of withdrawal. And how dangerous the symptoms are can vary quite a bit. Withdrawal from certain sedative or hypnotic drugs (downers) can be associated with seizures. Opiate withdrawal, while terribly painful, is actually less medically serious. Alcohol withdrawal is similar to sedative withdrawal and can be associated with seizures.

First 3 Days: After 3-5 days since one's last use of nicotine, there is no more in the body. Drinking more fluids can help it flush out faster. I encourage some my patients to try switching from cigarettes to nicorette (nicotine gum) gum- 4 mg and the uncoated mint. One chews it different from real gum so read the insert. Once a smoker gets used to the gum and over the cigarettes, the gum is tapered and discontinued.

Do you always get withdrawal symptoms when stopping use of a drug?

No: Withdrawal from medications/drugs/substances results from stopping it after you have taken it long enough for your body to acknowledge that it is no longer receiving it. Different drug characteristics cause for a different required amount of time & different time frame when to expect onset and ending of withdrawal. Sporadic use often doesn't result in withdrawal; everyone doesn't withdraw the same.
