I worked so hard will this set me back?

So i have been clean from percocet for 6 days and was starting to feel quite normal and the fog in my mind was starting to clear up and the depressed feeling was fading and i had already been through the worse part of withdrawals (i think). i wasn't weak (physically) dependent on it but on day 6 my dumbass decided to drink 4 gatorades which made my heart speed up rapidly and i started to panic so yeah... i did the whole relapse thing and took ONE perc last night to help calm myself down.. i mean i don't know how i feel right now its the next day after relapsing which would've been day 7 without using. i guess i can say my brain feels a little clouded again and i think the pain killer is still working because i still feel pretty numb but i'm scared for what tomorrow is gonna be like.. please reply!! will this set me back to day one? after taking that one perc i started crying in disappointment in myself because i worked so hard to get to where i am at! i mean every addict knows that 2 days after using is when the withdrawals symtoms kick in but how long will it last and how severe? i need answers! i'm scared to disappointed in myself.

will i still feel like i was on day 6 after tomorrow? or did i just mess things up completely for myself?

Is It Normal?

  • Relapsing doesn't mean you have permission to do it again. It just means you fucked up once.

      • You'll have to start over. Your body would recognize it so a restart is necessary

      • Going five days without is better than having used every day. So you are not going back to day one.

        • i was on day six but last night i took one perc.. my mind is sort of clearing up as the day goes on but when i detox this tomorrow i wonder if its going to come with a little depression and anxiety? if so i hope its only for one day maybe not even that. today is what would have been day 7 and i feel pretty normal i wonder if its the perc still working a little or is my mind beasting it through?

          • Be prepared for some withdrawal symptoms but don't let it deter you.

  • Gatorade doesn't generally, cause the symptoms you described that lead up to your so called relapse.
