How Long Does It Take To Withdraw From Tramadol?

I started taking tramadol a few weeks ago and stopped using it after several days before starting back up two weeks ago and quitting again. I thought that I went through a brief withdrawl, but I still feel very depressed and unsure about whether I want to live anymore. I feel depressed all the time and suicidal thoughts are with me every day..
