i am almost a year sober..but i gotta say i didnt even know i had a problem to i quit...I was curious if any of you had the same problems I had quitting...about a week before i quit i would walk into some place i would start sweating and hyperventialting and shaking and my heart would start beating out of my chest...i seriously thought i was having a heart attack but it would be short spurts and would be fine when i started drinking again...put it this way it was getting to the point (even though we werent drinking every night) that when I did drink no matter if it was one beer or ten I would forget the whole night. When I fell and hurt my knee was the last rope for me considering I dont remmeber it and was appparently driven home by the police....i never drank and drove. well it got worse as the days progressed i didnt leave the bed for about two monthes bc everytime i stood up i would have them feelings...i finally made it to a psych who diagnosed me as having depression and agoraphobia causing my pnic attacks and was told it was nothing to do with the alcohol..he put me on zoloft and ativan which has helped me tremendously now my question is have any of you had this symptoms when u quit.
