Teach me how to Wok!

I recently got a wok (I've never owned or cooked on one before). I seasoned per the instructions that came with the wok, but it seems to be looking worse for wear. What am I doing wrong?

After seasoning it the first time, it looked fantastic, with the dark patina the edges still have. After cooking a few meals, the patina gave way where food was being cooked, and I'm left back where I started.
I'm completely ignorant here, so don't feel like you're insulting my sensibilities. Is this due to how I'm cooking (high heat, always)? Could it be how I'm washing (no soap, shortly after cooking)? Do I just need to re-season my wok every week or so?
