first time (.5 grams) not knowing I had a job offer with drug screen

This answer was rated:

I tried cocaine on a Saturday night through early Sunday morning for the first time (.5 grams) not knowing I had a job offer with drug screen the following Friday morning @ 11am. I am a 23 yr. old male who is active and drinks a fair amount of liquids (water, beer etc.) I bought a $45.00 at home drug screen the night before my 'actual' urine screen and it tested negative for the drug, but also stated that my urine was adulterated with H20 to a certain extent. The screen was labeled (35105N SAP 5-50 W/NIT). I didn't 'abuse' any other liquids the night before my exam, and had half a bottle of water with breakfast the morning of my urine screen on Friday.

Should I be worried?

The general rule of thumb is that cocaine is detectable for between 2-5 days. THat would make you safe. Of course there is always the rare unusual case. Just in case they rule it as too dilute, you should make sure to stay crystal clean in case they ask for a repeat.
