Delirium tremens (colloquially, the DTs, "the horrors", "the fear", "the abdabs" or "the rats"; afflicted individuals referred to as "jitterbugs" in 1930s Harlem slang; literally, "shaking delirium" or "'trembling madness" in Latin) is an acute episode of delirium that is usually caused by withdrawal from alcohol, first described in 1813. Benzodiazepines are the treatment of choice for delirium tremens.
Delirium tremens is caused after a long period of drinking, stopping abruptly and experiencing withdrawal.
Constant consumption of alcoholic beverages (and the consequent chronic sedation) haha "CHRONIC" causes a counterregulatory response in the brain in attempt to regain homeostasis.
