Former Jesuit Novice On Temptations Of The Flesh

When will natural instincts that draw us to sin, that create an inner struggle in our lives, when will they subside? When will we no longer be struggling? When I was a Jesuit novice, a retreat master told us during a retreat prior to being invested in a Jesuit religious garb (habit),
"Will those temptations of the flesh disappear?
Yes. However it will not happen until your are six months in the grave!"
