Question HELP PLEASE: Acting drunk but not drinking?

Hello,

My father (59 years old) was a heavy drinker and smoker (he drank generally at nights not during the day). 14 days ago he gave up drinking and smoking.

What I observe is now he always acts like he is drunk. He has some short time memory problems, he seems disoriented and confused. He says and does things he used to say and do when he was really drunk.

Is this normal during the first stages of giving up the alcohol or should I be worried about other neurological diseases?

Thanks for your help.
