First off, it could be dangerous
"If you are at the point where you need to take a month off drinking, or take stock in your relationship with alcohol, the 'cold turkey' method could present some serious health issues," said Dr. Marc Romano, an addiction specialist at Pompano Beach, Florida's Ocean Breeze Recovery who clearly knows more than you and/or your Facebook friends about recovery, addiction, and evaluating your relationship with booze. If you are drinking every day -- or even every other day -- a sudden hiatus in habit could lead to serious complications, including life-threatening seizures.
"Of course, not everyone is going to have seizures if they give up drinking. It all depends on gender, height, weight, frequency of alcohol consumption, all those variables -- but there's really no way to know till it happens," Romano said. "Is that a risk you are willing to take?"
So yes, even if you aren't downing a Moscow mule with breakfast every day and only drink, say, four days out of the week, you could (key word: COULD) develop some dangerous symptoms from abrupt withdrawal. Really, this is about being safe. If you're dependent, you need to detox under the care of a professional.
