Why can't Frodo let the ring go?

There's something I don't get in TLOTR. How Bilbo had the ring for about 1 hundred & odd years, but yet managed (with a lot of pursuading) to let it go, but Frdo didn't have it 4 as long, but he couldn't. Why is this? Also, why does Frodo seem a lot more corrupted by the ring than Bilbo?

Bilbo seemed to be more corrupted by the ring more then Frodo not sure what version you watched.

The ring was at the height of its power within Mount Doom. Bilbo wouldn't have done any better.

The most correct answer is: "DO NOT TAKE ME FOR SOME CONJURER OF CHEAP TRICKS."

I don't remember if this line is in the book, in my mind, it's canon.

But no, the closer you get to Mount Doom, the more powerful the effect of the Ring (To the extent that no sub-Valar being, not even a fellow Maiar, could willingly throw the Ring into Mount Doom, which is why Gollum only destroyed it by losing his balance, probably from Valar Intervention).

PIS & CIS is the most correct answer.

Calm down. I know more of LoTR than you; it's okay.

That's a troll who made up multiple accounts. He/She's been doing that to several of my threads too.

Anyhow, the answer is that Sauron quickly gained power before and while Frodo had the ring, whereas Bilbo's domain of the ring was in a time where Sauron was weak and a mere shadow of his true powers.
