Question about Honda Civic
Sounds like your clutch disc has failed. The clutch cables on these cars are easy to adjust, the cable routes over the engine, from the driver side to the passenger side, to the release arm on the front side of the transmission. There is a large plastic nut on the transmission end of the cable. Normally you would pull upward on the cable housing, above the release arm, removing the freeplay from clutch and then adjust the plastic nut downward until it just touches the rubber nubs on the cable bushing. Yours probably has no freeplay, you will have to pull up on the housing and add freeplay, it won't be easy, it's almost like someone is pushing the clutch at this point. If you can add some freeplay, you might have some clutch left to get by on until you hit the lottery... good luck

Sounds like your clutch needs replacing. Clutch discs consist of the same sort of material as brake pads. After so much friction and heat they deteriorate quite quickly. If your inclined and have a good assortment of tools you can probably replace the clutch yourself. However this means removal of the transmission so the proper jacks and such are something you should have for safety. The transmission is quite heavy and without the right equipment it could be dangerous.
