How long does it take a person to detox from alcohol?

My bf wants time to detox. We have been on and off for two years and I would like to know so I could either break up with him and give him time while I move on with my life or stick by his side and wait patiently.

  • My BIL just got out of rehab. They told him he would be at risk of alcohol withdrawls for at LEAST the nest year! The alcohol itself is out of your system in a day or two, but there are lasting effects that will take a long time to deal with. Look in to rehab. It's the safest way to go. My BIL went a day w/o a drink and ended up with sezures from the withdrawl, that's how he ended up in rehab...
