Withdrawal symptoms occur when an addicted individual has stopped consuming drugs or alcohol. 

Common emotional withdrawal symptoms include: anxiety, restlessness, insomnia, depression, and irritability. 

Common physical withdrawal symptoms include: headaches, racing heart, muscle tension, tremors, difficulty breathing, and vomiting. 

These symptoms can lead to high levels of stress, which can increase chances of relapse.
