To be honest It will take a long time it took me 1.5 years to stop thinking about mine every time I saw something that reminded me of him. you just have to move on and find something else to focus on. It is possible to move on from a first love but you will never forget them.

time. it took me like 3-4 months to finally stop dying every time i saw her. avoiding her sure helped, tho. it still sucks when i see her, even now, over a year later. the worst part is in the beginning, when you question yourself, wondering what you did wrong. the bad part is that you may not have done ANYTHING wrong. mightve just been them.
Well, yes, it is hard to let go but you have to let yourself know it was for the better and its time to move on a find someone better. If they broke your heart then obviously they didn't care for you as much as you cared for them. Need Closure? Then get something that reminds you of that person and just let it go just don't let yourself hurt because of what happened. Hope you feel better and everything will be alright :)
Keep busy doing things you love to do and deal with other people. The clock moves forward. Try to put the past where it belongs: out of your mind. Distract yourself now, in the present, with nice things and activities and people. Take it one day at a time.
Though some have answered this with some good replys I will say that they are wrong. Its because there simply isn't a way for one to move on from the first love. Hanging out with some buddies and listening to music does help but only in that moment. It could be a year of not seeing each other when that one day comes you do and the feelings instantly come back. Just give it some time and someday you will find someone else who you could feel the same for
