Haha I started when I was 4. So about 14 years. Seeing as how I'm 18 now.
Amateurs practice until they can get it right.
Professionals practice until they can't get it wrong.

Get a good teacher, and also buy yourself a copy of Georege Lawrence Stone's Stick Control For the Snare Drummer. And if there are no teachers in your area, go to some shows, and you'll eventually see someone who impresses you, and you can hopefully pick their brain at the very least or maybe get a lesson or three!
