Hydrocodone tapering...HELP

I've been taking Hydrocodone for about 7 years now. I've slowly built up to taking 5-6 Hydro 10mgs a day. I've decided it's time to stop. I have 2 refills left, for a total of 100 pills. Is that enough to taper off of a 5 pill per day habit? I'm scared to death of the withdrawals. I ran out a while back and went 3 days w/out anything and it was horrible. I'm terrified of going through that again. How should I taper? I've never even tried before. How should I start? I want so badly to make it. I recently caught a coworker stealing my pills. After viewing our security camera, I found it's been going on for months. So, between me taking them and her stealing them, I've been running through my refills quicker than I normally would. Now I'm down to 2 refills and I don't think my doctor will refill anything more for me after these are gone. I have to make this work. Thank you for any advice you can give me.
