Well, let's dig a little deeper. What exactly do you mean, "I am using weights and they just dont seem to be working."

Like I can't gain any strength from doing them. My body just doesn't want to adapt.

Is it possible you aren't eating enough or eating poorly? This could keep you from getting all of the benefit of weight training.

What types of exercises are your doing?
How many reps?
How many sets?
How long have you been strength training?
Do you take each set to complete muscle failure?

I do use exercise machines a lot, focusing on my chest back and abs.
I tend to do 10 reps and see how many sets I can do, if I start to only be able to do 6-8 reps I'll stop and move on.

I've been strength training for a while now but have never stuck to a program

Well I would definitely say your strength issues are related to your training. I would suggest looking through (or following) the 19-week free training program. At least take a look at how the exercises are structured and how they progress. I would also recommend this article.
