Activating the quest

If you happened to get infected with vampirism and don't want to end as a bloodsucker, there's still some hope for you. During the first three days you can heal using conventional methods (potions or visiting a divine altar). If three days have already passed, you will need to put a bit more effort into it.

With the vampirism starting to give tangible effects (red eyes, pale skin etc - Rising at Dawn | Side quests - Side quests - The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Game Guide

With the vampirism starting to give tangible effects (red eyes, pale skin etc.), head to any inn and ask the innkeeper for the latest gossip. Seeing the state you're in, the innkeeper will suggest that the mage Falion from Morthal is rumoured to have learned the mystery behind vampirism. Who knows, maybe he knows the cure for your disease?

New main objective: Speak to Falion

The mage can be found in Morthal - a small town north-east of Whiterun (you can also easily reach it from Solitude). During the day, the man will be at his house and during the night at the ancient circle north-west of town. He will immediately recognize a vampire upon seeing you. Apparently he really has some knowledge.

In order to heal yourself of vampirism, you will need to participate in a mysterious ritual conducted by Falion - Rising at Dawn | Side quests - Side quests - The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Game Guide

In order to heal yourself of vampirism, you will need to participate in a mysterious ritual conducted by Falion. He will however need a filled Black Soul Gem for that. It seems that in return for your freedom, you will need to pay with someone's life.

New main objective: Bring a filled Black Soul Gem to Morthal

The Black Soul Gem can be found in a few ways. The easiest is just buying it from Falion - it doesn't cost that much. If you don't have enough gold, you can find it at Hjerim in Windhelm or at Hob's Fall Cave (west of Winterhold).

After obtaining the gem, you will still need to fill it - Rising at Dawn | Side quests - Side quests - The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Game Guide

After obtaining the gem, you will still need to fill it. In order to suck a soul and place it inside a gem, you will need a special spell (Soul Trap - available at most mages), or a weapon capable of imprisoning enemy souls. Afterwards hunt for a human - it will be easiest to sneak into a Bandit camp or any other cave and kill one there. After catching a soul, you can return to Falion.

New main objective: Meet Falion at dawn

After you give the mage the Filled Black Soul Gem, you can get ready for the ceremony. Head out of Morthal and go north-west until you reach a stone circle. Stand in the middle and wait for sunrise (around 5:00AM). Of course you don't have to just stand there and waste your time waiting, as by pressing T you can speed things up.

As the mage appears at the circle, ask him to conduct the ritual - Rising at Dawn | Side quests - Side quests - The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Game Guide

New main objective: Speak to Falion

New main objective: Wait for Falion to complete the ritual

As the mage appears at the circle, ask him to conduct the ritual. Falion will start reading a magical incarnation and as a result your world will start spinning and growing dark. The foul vampire soul will leave your body and you will lose your conscience. When you wake up, the sun will be high in the sky and you will be a completely healthy human. If you happen to catch vampirism again, you can return to Falion and repeat the whole process.
