Assalamualikum.I once upon a time made a promise to Allah that I will leave the sin.And I also made promise on others so that I can leave the sin and I broke the promise by committing the sin.May be this all happened 2 to 3 years ago and now I am getting guilt on my mind.Is sincere repentance of mine is acceptable.

You will have to give Kaffarah (expiation) for breaking the oath; which is feeding ten poor people two meals or clothing them, or if this is not possible then fast for three consecutive days.
