When you withdraw money from a Demand Deposit Account, it does not impact the aggregate money supply. The total amount of monetary assets in the economy remains unchanged. The only change is the form of the money, as it shifts from "Demand Deposits with the Banking System" to "Currency with the Public." Therefore, the act of withdrawal leaves the aggregate money supply unaffected.
