Yes! Jesus man, SWiY could die quitting that sort of habit cold. That sort of intake requires a medical withdrawal
regime consisting of a tapering course of a long lasting benzodiazepine
such as Chlordiazepoxide
) to fool the body into thinking it has alcohol
in it .
Quitting cold from that level of intake runs a high risk of grand mal seizures, which could in this situation be fatal. Hallucinations (& we're not tallking pretty visuals here!) are also a distinct possibility, as are intense tremor, sweats, insomnia, tachycardia
, agitation & restlessness.
Does SWiY have people around them? If so, he needs to tell them what is happening if he decides to carry on with this highly not recommended course of action, & he needs to tell them to get him to medical help as soon as he starts in with the major effects of withdrawal. In fact he needs to not put his friends through this at all, and carry on drinking until he can get to a doctor himself - maybe not at hte level he was, but he certainly needs to keep some alcohol in his system until he can reach someone who can help him quit without killing himself.
