In brief: Depends,

If you are an inpatient receiving detox medication your symptoms could be decreased considerably within hours.
If you are drinking heavily and stop suddenly and take no mediation for detox you could have symptoms lasting 5-7 days. It is much safer to do this while under care of your family md or psychiatrist.
