Opiate withdrawal: Going "cold turkey" from vicodin (active ingredient is the opioid hydrocodone) means stopping vicodin completely and abruptly (all at once), and then going into opioid withdrawal, which consists of general malaise, muscle aches, stomach cramps, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, runny nose, goose flesh, and generally feeling quite miserable.
