Dancing The Fig Newton
or doing the Fig Newton
refers to the "dance" one does when going through drug withdrawal, namely heroin, or oher opiates. The "dance" is usually
done in a bed, with the covers tightly pulled over ones head, and usually
includes leg kicking movements, rolling around in bed, and the constant
sitting up and lying down again that comes with the uncomfortability of heroin withdrawal. The Fig Newton
is traditionally danced in a pool of one's own sweat, and is usually
accompanied by the traditional soundtrack of constant
moaning, and occasional soft cries and/or whimpers.
I know I haven't seen
you guys in a while, but I've been trying to quit this shit, and I spent the last
4 days doing
the fig newton in my fucking room.
