I've been with adsense since 2004. Earning enough that I left my main job to concentrate on Adsense. I've had some ups and downs but I was able to buy a house and car and support a family of 4. I'm not earning as much as I used to but I survived. Sometimes I regretted leaving my job but on the other hand it's nice to work at home and spend quality time with my family.
Ive been successful because my focus is building a quality site and not making money. Thus visitors keep coming back and my page views keep increasing. It's really a lot of work. I'm surprised to hear other people updating their site only once a week or a month. I work almost 9 hours a day creating good content. If you are serious making money, you readily have to work hard on it. You need to be passionate about what you're doing.
