Has anyone been successful in intentionally ceasing to lust after the opposite sex?

For those of you that believe this is a perfectly OK thing to do, this is not a question for you.
I would really like to stop lusting after the opposite sex and reserve all of my sexual attention for my wife. Self-control is obviously a central issue. Has anyone been successful in controlling their lust? If so, what worked with you? What attitude did you adopt? What attitude did your spouse (if you have one) have to adopt to get through the transition?
