I'm still in a daze...it's amazing, says Blackpool hero Brett Ormerod

Blackpool completed a remarkable season on Saturday by defying the odds to clinch Premier League promotion for the first-time in their history."Daze" means a state of stunned confusion, and "haze" "a state of obscurity or confusion". I'd like to understand their difference. Is haze specially induced by drugs ? Thanks

    This is a good question, Red Giant. I think I've heard both words used in talk about drug-addled people. I tend to use "haze" to describe a general fuzziness or confusion about something. "Daze" definitely sounds like the stunned reaction to some intense event, such as emerging "dazed" from an automobile accident.
