The biggest challenge to quitting drinking is going through the psychological and physical alcohol withdrawal symptoms. Almost every unsuccessful attempt can be attributed to an inability to handle these symptoms.   

What are the Withdrawal Symptoms?
Common Psychological symptoms of alcohol withdrawal include:
•         Nervousness or edginess
•         Anxiety
•         Irritability and excitability
•         Anger
•         Hysterical outbursts
•         Rapid mood swings
•         Depression
•         Mental Fatigue
•         Inability to think clearly
•         Clouded memory
•         Nightmares
Common Physical symptoms of alcohol withdrawal include:
•         Mild to severe headaches
•         Excessive sweating,Guest Posting especially of the palms, feet or face
•         Nausea
•         Vomiting
•         Reduced appetite
•         Insomnia
•         Pale appearance
•         Palpitations
•         Enlarged or dilated pupils
•         Trembling  
•         Involuntary eyelid movements

Severe symptoms may include deliriousness, fever, convulsions, and even death.
The type and severity of symptoms vary from person to person. The pattern of symptoms experienced are usually dependent on the degree of dependence on alcohol, the number of years of dependence, the age at the time of alcohol withdrawal and the general physical health of the person.
Treatment Options for Ending Alcohol Abuse

Supportive individual or group therapy can be very useful to help the patient follow through with the life changes necessary to stop drinking. There are many specialized centers that offer individual and group psychotherapy programs. Some voluntary organizations like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) also offer such programs.

Allopathic Drugs
Benzodiazepines are commonly prescribed for alcohol withdrawal symptoms. However, they have to be tapered off over a period of 5-7 days, as symptoms subside.
Other drugs like Disulfiram are generally prescribed to prevent relapses of drinking bouts. These react with alcohol in the system to produce symptoms like headache, nausea and difficulty in breathing, and thus act as a deterrent to drinking.
These allopathic drugs should always be taken under the supervision of a medical doctor.

 Natural Remedies
Natural alcoholism remedies are gaining immense popularity today.  This is mainly because they have the ability to produce the same effects as allopathic medicines in terms of easing the withdrawal symptoms, without the side-effects. That means that natural remedies can be taken for longer durations and in higher doses if required. This has been translating into an increasing number of people finally being able to kick the habit!
