Like OM – cold turkey.
About 23 years ago gave up coffee – was drinking about 25-30 cups a day and started to get the shakes quite bad. Just stopped. 3 weeks of violent stomach cramps and headaches, and then it eased. Stayed off for about 10 years.
Now I have 1cup most days, and 2 or three cups if driving long distances (more than 8 hours at the wheel).
Similarly did cold turkey giving up meat, sugar, chocolate and alcohol (on the same day).
