I know that withdrawal can be super painful, but how likely is it to be deadly?

It may be easier than you think to die from withdrawals. I believe that seizures can be pretty common when not provided preventative treatment. People start having seizures and can pretty easily cause severe head trauma, choke to death, and seriously injure themselves in other ways. Plus, once seizures start there is a possibility of them continuing until the person falls into a coma. Scary stuff.
