Patient :I am 25 years old, female, and went through moderate alcohol withdrawal (extreme anxiety, shakes, weird dreams, fatigue) 3 months ago after using alcohol to self medicate my anxiety and ADHD. I have not had a drink in 90 days and am wondering if in the future I can have one standard drink without experiencing alcohol withdrawal for 5-7 days afterwards. I would like to be able to have one drink in the future occasionally at social gatherings.
