Sheening

verb Eponym
describes the act of overreacting/raging without any use of drugs or alcohol.
 
This term is an example of an eponym in which Charlie Sheen’s last name was suffixed with an “-ing”. This term’s origin is based on the accusation directed towards Charlie Sheen who was convicted of abusive of consumption of alcohol and drug abuse. He was later fired from the show Two and a Half Men after the revelation. And from then on, any act of insanity or lack of self-control has been commonly labeled as “Sheening” without the use of drugs (because clearly that’s illegal).
Etymology : Sheen (name) suffixed with “-ing”: eponym.
Source : I was taking care of a friend who was under the influence of alcohol after the party. On my way back, a stranger walking by saw us and said “your friend is sheening hard!” 11/18/2011.
