Hello, congrats, it is good you left alcohol. And yes,, difficulty in sleeping, tremors, weakness all could occur when you are in withdrawal from alcohol. Don't worry it can be managed with simple medical attention. You need to take vitamin thiamine supplements. Eat more fresh fruits and vegetables, drink plenty of water, don't do smoking or drinking again. You may need to take sedatives for few 2 or 3 days, please consult a general physician for prescription.
