Smoking of Marijuana

I am a long time cigarettes and marijauna smoker (20 years) and here recently i have decided to quit smoking both of them. When i got to the end of the first day it felt like there was an angry tornado in my head whirling around in chaos. I felt like i was flying apart at the seems and it was effecting everyone around me. So i tried toughing it out and the next day it got so bad i was locked in my room contemplating just ending it all, permanently. Now i picked them both back up just to get rid of the suicidal thoughts. What i need to know is, is there any type of medication that can be prescribed to me if i tell a doctor the truth about whats going on. I really want to get off of these things but the suicidal thoughts scared the crap out of me and im scared to try again without something to help.
