Have you purchased brewing software? How about reading Designing Great Beers? There is nothing wrong with kit brewing at all. But if you feel like you are cheating, then learn how to create your own recipes and read up on the styles. I've found it to be the most fun part of the hobby and now have over 100 different recipes in my rolodex. Maybe try one kit from each style you like and then learn how you can tweak it to your taste.
