It appears that your main problem, besides not being used to using a tablet yet, I suppose, is that it seems you don't have the pen pressure tool on. That will cause your lines to stay one thickness no mater how hard or lightly you press - by turing pen pressure on, you can control the thickness of your lines.
Here is a screen cap of where you can locate the pen pressure tool and turn it on - http://i587.photobucket.com/albums/ss313/Telekithesis/penpressure.jpg
(If you can't tell, it's under the 'brushes' button, then in shape dynamics, and on a scroll down list next to the word control, under the size jitter adjustment bar).
