I would like to know some commonly-used phrasal verbs referring to the action of stop being consistent in doing something. A phrasal verb that sounds natural and can be used in the following context.

e.g. I started to work out four times a week last spring, I was doing great,but I (gradually stopped doing so) lately.

Thanks for your help!


There are so many:

  • Stay away from

  • Get out of

  • Duck out of/Wriggle out of/ flinch from/ abstain from and refrain from.

Any one will do. But if you are still in the process, write

  • Cut down

  • Bring down

  • Shave off

  • Whittle away.

  • give up may be suitable. – mahmud koya Apr 21 at 14:27
