It varies: It really depends on your body weight, rate of metabolism, if you ate when you drunk, and on the amount and type of alcohol. It also depends on your genetic ability to metabolize and tolerate alcohol. Children of alcoholics will have a higher tolerance for alcohol. On average, the withdrawal lasts at least one day. You can see alcohol makes you sick. Have you considered stopping drinking?
