It's taken 5 years for me to be earning a steady, fairly reliable income that pays for a comfortable living (although that could change at any time). I would say that 99 of 100 things I've tried, with Adsense and in other areas, do not work. It takes preserverance and trial and error to make anything work. Don't give up.
