In brief: Temporarily
(obviously more information needed) how long ago did you quit drinking, and how much were you drinking? Overall stopping drinking is good for your health, but there are acute withdrawal symptoms, as your body adjusts.
Think back how you felt any given morning after a drunk night. Not so good probably, symptoms would be relieved by alcohol's putting you back in semi-stupor. Break that cycle!

In brief: Possible
Most common symptom of stopping smoking is the "shakes" - alcohol withdrawal tremor, with sweating, increased anxiety, insomnia.
Indigestion and low energy are possible, and headaches are common, but pain in legs and hips are not. If you are a heavy drinker, stopping alcohol suddenly can be dangerous - talk to your doctor or health care professional asap and get evaluated for help.
