“The best way is to just go cold turkey. That’s what I did.”

When you give up something like smoking, alcohol, gambling or just chocolate, there are many strategies. You can try to reduce it gradually, or you can stop all at once. If you stop suddenly, without preparation, you “go cold turkey”.

「禁煙したいから、たばこは一日一本にしてみるよ。」
「(少しずつ減らすのではなく)きっぱりと完全にやめるのが一番だ。僕はそうしたよ。」

タバコ、お酒、ギャンブル、チョコでも、何かをやめるには色々なやり方があります。少しずつ減らすか、急に完全にやめるか。準備なしに急にやめることを「go cold turkey」といいます。
