Thank you for the additional information,

Well usually cocaine would be undetectable at most 5 days after using it, in the urine. However, there are certain factors which can extend the detection time upto 10 days, concomittant use of alcohol being one of them. Secondly, if you are semi chronic user of cocaine that can cause the metabolism of cocaine to be altered as well meaning it can take upto 14 days in some patients for cocaine to completely undetectable in the urine.

In your case, given the use of cocaine with alcohol, it will be touch and go at best. if you hadnt used alcohol then i would say that you are safe and it wont be detected in the urine. However since you were drinking, i would say that there is a 50% chance of it being detected in your urine even if it has been six days. Alcohol alters the metabolism and would delay excretion or rather elimination of cocaine from the system.
