Default what are "post acutes?"

I read in subhelps story that she had "post acutes" but she didn't get into that part of the story yet. Does anyone know what they are?

Hi lily, subhelp is referring to Post Acute Withdrawal Symptoms (PAWS). This is an old thread about it:

I do not take much stock in this myself

I believe this is not withdrawal but the body making chamges. I feel this puts too much pressure in a timeline to get well. Sobriety is a journey and we make adaptations along the way as does our body.

Heck I know how WD feels and to say depression,anxiety and the like are protracted wd events months later stretchs my understanding

mainly strong cravings, depression, anxiety, and some minor physical effects such as hot flushes, chills (not anywhere near as bad as the early withdrawal effects).
