Welcome and Hatzlacha!  No matter what, just keep on fighting.  You will have falls, but eventually you will be successful.

I found Yeshiva to be a hard time for me. Too much of bein Hasedorim was Hefker. That made me sad and sadness... 
i would suggest that you try to find healthy outlets even if they are not quite what Yeshiva is all about.

A thought: I sometimes found my taiveh was even worse for the frum girls. They used to drive me crazy!!!! I'm much older now and look back at myself and laugh. Just try hard. Don't beat yourself up if you fail. Its NOT all or nothing.

To win once and for all, you will have to have positive approach to life every day for the rest of your life.
It is not a battle that you fight once, an opponent you somehow "conquer", and can then relax for ever.
You have to be in an aware state of mind every day.

 NO, It's not all or nothing, just every bit counts!

I failed yesterday, and I might fail tomorrow. But just for today I'm going to give it a try.
