General it as Object

The 'cut it out' group

These verbs are concerned with stopping doing something. We include here snuff it, which means 'die' and end it all, which means 'kill yourself'.
'One of them was so bad,' said Chernikov, 'we thought he had snuffed it.'
The verbs cool, hold, cut out, and knock off are always or usually used in the imperative.
'I'm warning you,' his persecutor said. 'Cut it out. Or else.'
'Hold it, Mom. Better not call the cops,' Frank said quickly.
The verbs end, chuck in, and chuck up are always or usually used with it all, rather than it.
I wouldn't fall on the floor in surprise, if he suddenly announced one day that he was chucking it all up.
I'd just had enough, and I just wanted to end it all.
