Abt to stop an 8 year run of Vicodin; need some advice

I almost feel bad posting this as others have "real" addiction issues:
I have been taking Vicodin, ONLY at nights, for the past 8 years. I generally split a 10mg pill in half and take one half at about 8pm, followed by the 2nd half at 11pm. Sometimes ill take a 3rd half an hour or so later.

This began as a pain thing and now I do it to "relax" in the evening after work.

I NEVER take them during the day, nor do I have any desire to take them during the day.

I am very grateful for having not gotten addicted at a higher level but want to stop this bad habit nonetheless.

My question is: does this low of a dosage warrant a "weaning-off-period" or, can/should I just stop cold-turkey?

Thank you for reading this!
