I am 8 days sober; I was drinking about 4-14 beers per night (more on the weekends) for the last four years (5' 6'' 125 pounds). I had a lot of anxiety last week, but this week I seem to be sleeping better and waking up feeling ok, but at nights I feel extremely cloudy in the head and my heart races and  I feel extremely panicky. (I'm 27) I also lost about 7 pounds in the past two weeks (I tapered off first about two weeks ago, then quit totally last Sunday)  Is this normal? Does anybody know when this will stop?  I don't have a big history of panic attacks (i've had about three when I was younger), I'm on no medications, I'm just worried there is something else wrong and I think its just alcohol withdrawal.  Thanks! I'm new to this forum..

Hello and welcome.  Congratulations on your steps toward a healthier lifestyle!

One thing that will help you clear out the "brain fog" and get some of your energy back is taking a good multi vitamin. Drinking heavily on a regular basis depleats your body of a lot of necessary vitamins & minerals - B vitamins especially.  A good multi and  a B suppliment would be even better.

Drink plenty of water - good advise no matter what your health goals are :)

Be sure to exercise, but give your body the rest it needs, too. It takes time to heal from the damage drinking does, and resting will help.

Seek out your physician's advice to help you rebuild your body and to be on the safe side.  That is a pretty good weight loss as you not a very large person it seems.

Just stay focused & know we are here  whenever you want to talk. The best of luck to you.
