Do I need to make an explanation sentence before using pack it in? Can it be used with some gerund structure like pack ...ing in?
Thanks in advance
If you mean can you say something like "I think you should pack smoking in" to mean "I think you should stop/quit smoking" then yes. However, I would personally say "I think you should pack in smoking" (note the word order).
If that's not what you meant then ... I don't know what you meant!
Children were making noise and I couldn't concentrate on my study. I told them pack it in.
