Any possibility she took something else? I ask this because taking alcohol as we all know can screw up the liver. It can also induce or inhibit certain enzymes that metabolize other meds, so their effects can be increased or decreased.

"Dry drunk" is actually a medical condition. They have given up drinking but their mindset is still in that they are drinking so they act drunk. Often, being dry drunk is a precursor to a relapse. Try to get her to develop a hobby, or spend more time with you guys. All the drinking probably made her health worsen so help her get healthy again. If it continues, I'd see a doctor.

She has alcoholic hepatitis, but has been healthy (well, basically) since she quit drinking. She doesn't take any medications anymore, so I'm not sure it's that.

My family's small, and we live in a rural (well, becoming suburban <<; ) area. I live with my dad and my mom. I go to school, my dad works most of the day, and my mom stays home. She has trouble keeping jobs due to the depression causing a lack of willpower, and stress causing relapses into drinking and such.

My dad said that she now feels kind-of sick. She has "the shakes", he said. I told him to get her to eat some sugar (hypoglycemia? it's happened to me a few times before), but it didn't really work (kit-kat = no effect).

I know, stupid theory, but what could a kit-kat hurt? Lol.

Any other ideas? I feel bad for her. She has enough to deal with being depressed, it doesn't help that now she acts and seems drunk when she's proud with her 6-month chip. x.x...

She's partially unreactive to stimuli (like being spoken to) and is moving very slow and...it hurts to see her like this...

How long was she an alcoholic for and when she was, would she guzzle drinks that had a lot of alcohol content down or not a lot. Reason why I'm asking (I found it's better to say the reasons for asking some odd questions, people tend to actually answer) is that there may (not saying there is) some effects due to long-term alcoholism. I'm not sure if any of them could cause what you're describing.

She drank for 16 years. Started out just drinking a few beers per night. Over the years, she needed more and more. In the last few years, she went through about a case or more of beer a day. And it increased a bit more until we got her to stop, then she started with vodka and such, and stopped, then beer, then stopped, then vodka-like stuff, then done. Unless she was drunk on stronger stuff, her drunkenness never really showed.

It's peculiar to see a sober person who looks like they had a bunch of shots x.x

Many medical conditions can present in a manner that looks like a person is drunk. Most notably hypoglycemia, stroke, and then obviously being drunk. You'd want to first evaluate how she responds to eating some food such as a sandwich. A kit-kat wouldn't get you what you'd need. I've never heard of "Dry Drunk" in all of my EMT training, so I can't speak for that. If the condition persists, consider taking her to a doctor or calling emergency services.
