    Usage of "cease"

    Hello. Today I would like to ask you this:

    Is this way of using "cease" is appropriate?

    You should cease swimming in sea in winter. It is too cold. If you do, you will have a cold.

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: Usage of "cease"

    It's OK, but it soundds a bit out of place in this sentence- I would use stop/give up. Also, I would change the second sentence to If you don't, you will get a cold.
