Got fed up and deleted my archives

So I should be on my 51st comic now, but I got fed up of looking at my old comics and removed them from the site. Now I am on my 7th.
It's strange, and also possibly terrifying; I've gotten slightly better at drawing and the whole shebang of making comics (layout, spacing, etc) since I started in January ("lol", many of you guys/gals whom have done this since you were kids, are thinking), but when I started I thought my first attempts at comicking were so amazing. Just staring at the piece of paper onto which I had scrawled my amateur doodles, a smile on my face, proclaiming to myself "I can do this, it's a piece of cake". Strange, that for a piece of cake, it sure tastes like humble pie!
Now, for the first time, I vaguely understand how other artists feel when they say they hate their early work. If I hate my first comics this much now, how much will I hate them in a year? Or two years? Or twenty years?
God, I need a drink.
