Been about 4 - 5 days today, and shit, withdrawal symptoms reared their ugly head tonight. Panicced, anxious, can't sit still, feeling slightly fluey.
Shit, this really sucks, never been through this before, but it definitely sounds like classic marijuana withdrawal.

It affects different people differently. My dad smoked daily for yearsssssss, and has done some pretty hard shit in his life as well. When he was forced to quit pot cold turkey after his last divorce, he said it was one of the most maddening periods of his entire life.
Your body is craving THC and because it's such a cumulative chemical, it's storing little bits of it in your fatty cells to release at slight times. It's really not a good mental feeling in the least, so just hold in there, I promise it only gets easier and easier to deal with. I felt all fluey and anxious as well, its shit, but it will go away entirely.

It's pretty nuts. I actually FEEL slightly high and had a little bit of cottonmouth and red eye. Could just be my imagination, but I wouldn't be surprised in the least based on what you're saying about the storing of THC.
I went for a run at 11:30 tonight and that itself made me feel a lot better, released some stress and got the endorphins flowing. I'm going to be upping my water intake by a good bit and continue to do some cardio. Really wish I had access to my University's sauna right now, I've read that helps a shitload, like you said, in terms of getting it out of your system.
At this point I'm just getting more and more turned off to weed. I felt really bad too as it's my mom's 50th tonight, and I just started degenerating while we were out in public at a restaurant, and panic attacks + anxiety in a public setting with nowhere to go are absolute hell. Luckily her and my dad understand, but shit, kind of a buzzkill to the evening, which made it even worse.
