    Graff Withdrawls?

    Discussion started by BrainWash - Oct 11, 2001

    The majority of serious writers i know, myself included,agree that they are somewhat addicted to graff.I was wondering if anybody gets withdrawls when you dont get out to paint. Most addictions have some sort of withdrawl after you stop, could this be any different?

    I honestly haven't felt worse about life when something stops me from being able to paint for a while. I get depressed, spend countless hours on 12oz....and just wish that was me...
    This kind of circumstance has only happened once or twice, but in general if its been a while and I get stuck somewhere without paint I just get really really pissed off and angly at life. So in short, yes, I get withdrawls.

    I tend to drift off from it now and again and come up realizing that something feels different, as if something is truly missing from my life, and it becomes more and more difficult to place the longer I go without painting. Then I get out again, and it's like 'oh yeah, that's how I deal with all my pent up stress - this is great!'

    Is that considered withdrawal? I guess not, but now I know painting to be quite therapuetic for me.

    i am not a veteran writer but i remember when it was raining every day for a while and i had withdrawls, either that or when i am broke and cant paint i get some sort of withdrawls. the worst is when you really want to go paint but for some reason you can't.

    God i get withdrawals every fuckin day. If it was possible for me to paint every day, i would. Problem is, im too puss to go out by myself, and my 'friends' punk out alot. theyre not really hardcore anyhow. It blows :(

    but deez-amn, i get mad withdrawls if i dont go paintin in over 4-5 days. ive actually re-organized my paint and fucking took a sniff or two just to try to stop my craving. lolol im really fucked up i swear.

    yes, yes, yes...major withdrawl symptoms...it's like the bull shit keeps piling and fuckin piling until...the need to paint something fuckin anything supercedes food and sex...or i'm just mad pissed off. either way it's no good. on the other hand, when i'm in a good stretch of paintin i feels good......gooooooooood....
