I have enabled TRIM by adding discard option in /etc/fstab but even after removing it the effect is not going. How to disable it?

In 14.04 there is an automativ weekly trim. You can disable it with:
sudo rm /etc/cron.weekly/fstrim
But I wouldn't recommend totally disabling TRIM, this will slow your drive down with time.
