Yeah, honestly 180s and 360s will take a lot longer to get mastered when doing it without cheating and hucking your body around.

I've never seen actually ever seen anyone learn proper, smooth 360 technique in a short period of time, so don't feel discouraged, it takes time for everyone to get it down.

The plus side is once you have basic spin technique mastered, it makes EVERYTHING else a heck of a lot easier and faster to learn because so many advanced tricks build straight on top of your basic spin technique.
