Not necessary. She will quit when she is ready.

My kids never used a pacifier. Maybe let her throw it away. Explain she's a big girl and doesn't need it anymore.

slowly start cutting off the end of the pacifier for about maybe a week or so?.. it'll slowly wheen her off it.

You will have to learn to deal with the crying, if you keep giving it back to her she will learn that if she cries hard and long enough you'll give in...that is not a good lesson. Have the big girl talk, say bye bye to the binky and do not give it back. Take her to the store and get her a new "friend" to sleep with as comfort, a stuffed animal of some kind, very soft, cuddly. And keep an eye out for the thumb replacing the binky.

With my kids, My wife and I were going out of town for a week and left the kids with Her brother. They SO wanted to be like their "big Kids" that when they showed up without binkys, they did not want to complain. They had their stuffed animals, and that was good enough... It has to be part of a bigger thing. Maybe a birthday or Christmas. Our Doctor always said, "I've never seen a 13 year old do that." Meaning that these problems will usually solve themselves as they grow. Don't stress on it too much.

Tell them they are a big kid now and that you need to send their pacifier to the babies. Just remember they will go through withdrawal.

Cold turkey! Is one way, not finding it and saying its lost and helping them look for it.
