You should not simply stop the Librium. You need to taper it slowly and this is best done with the advice of your doctor.
the Danger in stopping abruptly is withdrawal syndrome.... but with librium withdrawal seizures are possible. \
I'm sorry about the weight issue but it is really secondary here.
Stopping a benzodiazepine like librium abruptly can be very dangerous.
The next issue is to figure out what you are going to to about the alcohol... it is not clear from your post but it seems like you may be considering starting to drink again.
It sounds like this might be a very bad thing indeed as you were drinking to the point of requiring librium to get you through the alcohol withdrawal.
Please discuss these issues with your doctor who is taking good care of you, and do not simply stop the lithium.
