@JoeBlow there are really two answers here. I don't want to accept "hot turkey" but I like your argument for just going with "cold turkey". Can u consider an edit?

@ThorbjørnRavnAndersen I think you are right although I do hear the term sometimes used outside of withdrawal symptoms. It makes it difficult to find an answer and suggests my question is flawed. Thanks for pointing that out.

This is closer to what I'm getting at. Also "jumped right in" might work, but I'm hoping for something that can be used int he same way as cold turkey.

Close, but I want to convey that the action is done despite other easier ways to do it. Duck to water makes me think it comes easy. Cold turkey is not easy.

Thanks @Ricky, but not quite right. I'm really looking for a phrase more like an idiom than an adverb. Though I could sure go for a cream puff right now.
