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.

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.
