Erasing?

This is probably a really simple question, but:
Whenever I want to erase the background of something, and it's not white, I can't do it. I mean, it looks choppy and awful and I can't seem to fix that. The lasso tool is not very helpful because I don't have a very steady hand, and the magnetic lasso sometimes doesn't go where you want it to, and isn't very accurate.

examples (mine):


But I want mine to look more like these:

burymyregret and calikalie
and this (credit newkidfan) and this (credit glowinglogos, and it's shrunken because of photobucket) they're larger and you can really tell.

Help please? Any tuts or tips?
I use PS7, if that makes a difference.
Thanks in advance!
