    Default Cold Turkey

    One idiom that does not grow on me is a "Cold Turkey"
    I can see why this or that idiom was invented and used but "Cold Turkey" !!!
    I know the meaning - quitting smoking or any addiction cold turkey...I can't feel it...why particularly that?
    Anyone has an idea?
