As my Knowledge you can create Two workflows on same list one is Start when "start when an item is Created" and second workflow is When "start when an item is changed" by SharePoint Out Of Box.

Don't know if I got your question. First, you should create a second workflow, set it to "start when an item is changed". Within this workflow you can access your up to date data from within the item every time it is changed. However you cannot stop the workflow started by "item creation workflow" from within the "item changed workflow", at least not with SharePoint Designer.
