to break a habit without any processes
Joe used to smoke, but he quit cold turkey and hasn't gone back to it since. He is living proof that going cold turkey can be successful, especially if you don't do your bad habit very often. He only smoked his cloves 3-4 times a week.

Cold turkey refers to the clammy, cold, sweaty and goose bumped state of the heroin addict that is trying to "kick" the habit. This happens when the junkie decides to give up heroin without any sort of support mechanism - such as methadone - to take the place of the heroin. The body reacts by turning cold, clammy, sweaty, and the skin resembles that of a cold turkey.
"Did you hear Jojo was giving up junk?"
"Really? How?"
"He's going cold turkey - he looks like hell."

When you completely quit a habit, typically smoking right away. It is very painful and puts you in a very irritable mood. It is very different than giving up gradually. When giving up gradually, you smoke littler and littler each day.

Attempting to leave Yale University for summer vacation. The three months apart from said institution is known to drive naive quitters insane, until they inevitably relapse around late August. Side effects of quitting Yale cold turkey include extreme boredom, Forever Alone, Sad Frog face, sobriety, and reassimilation into mainstream society.
Concerned mother: It's my 19 year old's first time quitting Yale cold turkey. He's two months in but he's stopped eating.

Another mother: My son failed a class so he could retake it over the summer.

Concerned mother: My son never thought of that!
