I would not suggest you go cold turkey, call your doctor or drug clinic for help you could get very sick. A family member of mine went called turkey off Morphine and had lung and heart issues for quite awhile it wasn't pretty watching it. I went called turkey off Fentynal Pain Patches and ended up in the hospital violently ill for six days. Please get help before doing this. I don't know how your health is but if you have any health issues it could be even worse. Hope this info helps you in your decision. Good luck

DON'T DO IT!!! GET HELP FIRST!!!
I am 54, and I quit, legally prescribed Morphine use on November 23, 2005. I have had a partial lung removal and have a very damaged immune system from a fifteen year bout with EMPYEMA (not a typo), and the damage it caused. It is an build up of infectious fluid, mine in my right chest from untreated pneumonia. You are supposed to die in weeks if left untreated. Mine went dormant for fifteen years before the doctors found it. And then, only because I went comatose in the ER. That began a six month (hospitalized) odyssey of being near death, until, after four months they finally got it under control. Now you know why I was on it.
