Is my spiritual direction the proper way and I am doing the right thing. HELP

Hello I came across krsna consciousness for almost 6 months now. I have been following the principles regularly. Here is my situation:

I gave up meat completely. (use to eat everything everyday)

I gave up gambling with my friends (haven't done serious gambling in over 4 months)

I am in the process of giving up/controlling sex

I am in the process of giving up/controlling intoxicants

from 6 months ago I am a completely different person in how go about my life. much more friendlier and krsna consciousness induced.

I really try to control my sexual and intoxicant desires. I gave up cigarettes and coffee completely, but sometimes I get the urge or put in situation where I need to smoke some marijuana. I really do control it to the point where at times I want to but I don't. It very rare that I give into these material desires. (example. I use to smoke everyday and was addicted and now I am to the point of once a week or two. Same goes for sex)

I just want to know am I heading in the right path. I know I am not a completely self realized soul and in the progress of becoming one, but I am hope I am heading in the right path. I just feel guilty sometimes when I induce in sex and intoxicants. I really am a better person, I just don't want to fall in god's eyes.

Please help me and give me some advice in my direction of spiritual advancement. I do want to change I believe I can do it.

I am college student by the way induced in the void material world. So it is very challenging for me in this environment. I want someone else's opinion because I don't know who else to talk about this internal conflict with. Any advice will be great.

Thank you so much for listening and Hare Krishna !
