Seeing as you have asked the question twice-relax- they are tough bushes and respond well to hard pruning-you are unlikely to have killed it
Chances are it will survive and flourish
It will survive well, mine gets cut back this month. If very hard you may not get 'smoke' next year, the year I did that I loved it as the colour of the leaves was stunning. This year it did have smoko, and is now ready for the chop. There is a good RHS book on pruning, you might get it from your public library? Takes all the mystique out of it tetty well.
