Becoming a pharmacist takes diligence. I had to put everything else aside. That meant television, shopping, my boyfriend, you name it. I knew I wanted a career and everything would be waiting for me later. I always say anything worth it in life doesn't come easily. In the end it is all worth it. If it is your heart's desire, you will be able to do it. Good luck!
How difficult you think it is is all up to you, and how passionate you are about becoming a Pharmacist. I'm not trying to sound philosophical or anything, but it's true. It usually takes about 8 years (4 years college undergraduate studies for a bachelor's in pre-pharm, then 4 years at a pharmacy school). You might even take 10 years if you decide to do a two-year residency or specialize in a specific branch of pharmacy like pediatrics.
I am currently a freshman in a co-operative pharmacy program with a regular college and college of pharmacy that will allow me to become a pharmacist in 6 years instead of the usual 8, as long as I maintain a certain GPA and other requirements (hopefully). Many pharmacy schools offer intense programs like this one, but they won't be easy to find, so I suggest you start researching into them further.
I hope you found this answer useful! If you have any questions I'll be more than happy to help. (:
