Overcoming an addictive disorder is no walk in the park. In addition to learning how to live an entirely new way of life, you have to face the consequences of your active addiction and inevitably undergo withdrawal. When your body becomes accustomed to the presence of a chemical substance it makes necessary adjustments. When you stop using the substance abruptly, your body and your central nervous system essentially go into shock. This is where the symptoms of drug and alcohol withdrawal come into play.
