Hi,
Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. Im sorry to hear about your situation. Can i ask, were you using cocaine before these 7 days or was this a one off event (using cocaine for only these 7 days)?

Well usually stopping cocaine suddenly can lead to some withdrawal symptoms HOWEVER the duration and intensity of those withdrawal symptoms would depend on the duration for which you used cocaine. For example if you were a chronic cocaine user for last several months or years then the withdrawal symptoms would have been more severe, but in your case the use was for a short duration of time that is seven days so it is possible that you MAY not develop withdrawal symptoms AT ALL. It is very likely that you will be perfectly fine and not have any problems whatsoever simply because you used the drug for one week only.

But if you do develop withdrawal symptoms, they will usually be for 1-3 days and would be MILD in intensity. It can include symptoms like,

  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Fatigue or exhaustion
  • Inability to experience sexual arousal
  • Physical symptoms, such as chills, tremors, muscle aches,
  • Vivid, unpleasant dreams or nightmares
  • Slowed activity, or physical fatigue after activity
  • Slower thinking
  • Restlessness

BUT let me emphasize that i dont believe you will develop these symptoms but EVEN if you do, the intensity should be mild and they should last for ONLY a short duration of time. IF by chance you do develop severe symptoms then you should seek medical attention but i think you should be fine.

Do you have any more questions?

will i have craving
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
even tho i have snorted 18 grams of cocaine with only 1 day of sleep i wont get really sick
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
i wont be addicted
Doctor: Dr. Muneeb Ali, Doctor replied 1 year ago

You may have mild craving on the first day or two but that will fade away as well within 24-48 hours. But again as i said before you only used the cocaine for 7 days which is a short amount of time. You may experience mild symptoms but they can be managed, the craving would depend on your individual state. Some people find the craving difficult to manage while others in your situation can easily manage it.

Yes you may have symptoms but they SHOULD be mild given that you used the drug for only 7 days, the amount is not significant but it is more the duration you used the drug for. The lack of SLEEP is something else that can amplify some of the symptoms, you should start resting up from now onwards and get as much sleep as your can. if you cant fall asleep then use OTC benadryl which should be effective in inducing sleep and controlling some of the symptoms.

And no you should not be addicted, you should be able to beat this problem.
