Psychiatrist Dr. Keerthish Shetty's  Response
There is a direct link between drinking alcohol and seizures. If a person who is consuming alcohol regularly for a long time, abruptly stops drinking the same, he can develop seizures. This is because, in the long run, our body gets used to constant presence of alcohol (alcohol dependence). However, smoking is not directly related to seizures.
It is advisable to consult a psychiatrist for advise regarding alcohol use and smoking. It may also be necessary to rule out other causes of seizure.
