fajr salah and sunnah of zuhr for you would be tranquil

Q: Assalam U alaikum, Imaam Sahib
I try my hardest to pray 5 times a day. The hardest prayer is the morning Salah. I have been missing it for a while now. No matter what I do, and no matter how much i try i can’t get up to pray. I have tried sleeping very early the night before, but i still miss it. I know that this is a very big sin. But please give some advice, and also will i be punished for this?? Sorry one more question; I pray all the Sunnah before and after every salah except Zuhr, due to the fact that I become very lazy and it is too much for me and I make stupid excuses. Is this something i will be punished for? Thank you very much, and may Allah bless you and give you Jannatul Firdaws. JazakAllah

One the sign of imaan is the performing of fajr salah.
You are trying, merely try harder. Solution: get a group to support you. Go to prayer together with others.  Get others up in the morning, get a group that you would call EVERY morning to alert them about the fajr salah. If you are sincere, Inshallah, Allah (SWT) would forgive you. However, you must makeup for that which you have missed.
The fact that you are asking: would i get punished for not performing my sunnah, implies to me that your heart is restless when you do not pray. Without going into the debate as to weather the sunnah before zohr must be performed or not performed, how many rakats must be performed, etc. I suggest for tranquility, you do read that which you trust in. This four rakats would only take you 5 minutes.  This would make you spiritually stronger. So why not do it?!
Allah Certainly Knows Best.
