Also, ease up. Lessen in severity, relax; abate. For example, I wish you'd ease off on Harold; he's doing the best he can, or The wind's eased up so I think the storm is just about over. [Late 1800s] Also see let up.
Fall away, gradually decrease, as in The market's easing off, so we may get some stocks more cheaply. [Late 1800s]
