Relapsed, and am scared

I quit heroin last Thursday, about six days ago, and used Subutex to he through the first part of my withdrawal but in a moment of weaknes shot up again. My question is will my physical withdrawal symptoms start all over again or will they be minimal, i threw out the rest of my h and won't  use again, I just can't go through what I was going through a few days ago?

the thing is i m still fighting with the urges. physically i still have back aches, restlesslegs, insomnia. but i ve come to know that it depends on how much and how long have been using the drug. i stayed on heroin for 14 yrs. but this fight s worth fighting. and this forum has helped me alot, people here are alot supportive and inspiring. keep the faith keep posting, u get through the rough soon i wish.
