struggling to get my son to sleep

Hi I am new to all this but I really need some advice. I have a 17 nearly 18 month old son who wont go to sleep on his own in his own bed and who has never slept through the night! Ive tried to let him cry it out, tried different routines etc but nothing seems to work. He only has 1 nap in the day now which is about an hour but when he has that nap its either on me or when when we are out and he is in his pram. He has never been a good sleeper and when he was younger I did co sleep with him as I was exhausted. So him being a bad sleeper could well be all my own fault for doing that but I was just wondering can anybody help me by giving a few suggestions. Thanks.
