what is withdrawal how long does it last

If you have been using certain addictive drugs and you stop suddenly or abruptly or you cut down your use drastically, you can experience a variety of symptoms known as withdrawal. The intensity and length of these withdrawal symptoms can vary widely, depending on the type of drug and your biological make-up.

While the physical symptoms of withdrawal might last only a few days or a week, the psychological withdrawal, such as depression or dysphoria, can last for weeks.
