Why do I have these thoughts even after being saved. Will I ever be free of them???

Ever since I got saved 2 months ago I have been ever aware of my sinful past. I understand once I accepted Christ God forgave past and present sins. I believe my issue is that I need to accept I have been forgiven. I am a 30 year old woman and I have 2 young children whom I love very much. I am constantly aware of my past sin, doing things that I knew were wrong, getting caught up in an alternative lifestyle in which I no longer practice and I find myself becoming disgusted @ those things and wonder if He has really forgiven me for those things. I now know that I really didnt enjoy those things and I wouldnt dare partake in them now. I believe my flesh is constantly reminding me of my faults, telling me I should give up because Im going to Hell anyway. I no longer want to be bogged down by this. I am a believer in Christ, I attempt to live as he lived but my thoughts are becoming unpure and I truly hate these thoughts. I do not want to go back to those practices. They are truely not of God. I want to live a Godly life and create a better atmosphere for my children. Will these thoughts/feelings ever go away? I know I do not want to do those things alot of times I get a thought and I feel so bad about it and wonder will I ever be free, have I been forgiven and will I make it to Heaven. Please share with me some good, encouraging advice…
