Reaching your goal is easy. It's maintaining it that's the hardest part. This goes for almost anything because it doesn't involve a temporary shift. It involves a permanent lifestyle change. As stated in a great documentary DMT: The Spirit Molecule "Ayahuasca is in no way the end all be all. She only opens the door to learning." When I came back from Peru I was on a "high" feeling like nothing was ever going to bother me again. I was "fixed" and was able live a light and fluffy life without problems. Man was that foolish! I constantly heard the miracle stories about how people transformed after their ceremonies. They became new people. Perfect almost. It made me feel as if I had missed something along the way. No one addressed the continued work they were doing along with the new struggles they faced. I realized that no one becomes perfectly at peace after doing Ayahuasca. They were simply dealing with things in a better way. The work is on-going. Red Hawk talks about this in greater detail in his book Self Observation.
