"Jonesing" came from a Grateful Dead song "Casey Jones". The line was in the chorus "driving that train, high on cocaine, Casey Jones you better watch your speed".

Casey Jones was a train engineer I believe in the 1800's who stayed with the engine trying to stop it rather than jump and save himself when he was about to crash into another train. It was something we learned in elementary school history.
