In brief: 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.
