In brief: Yes

Decreased appetite, insomnia and anxiety are all common symptoms of alcohol withdrawal.
If this is you we are talking about, it is important for you to get yourself into a support system to stay quit, as well as taking a multivitamin and thiamine (vit b1 at least 50 mg daily), especially if you are not eating properly. See your doctor for a health evaluation and additional support.
