Dave, first of all, I'd like to welcome you to the world of guitar. When you start to lean any new skill, not just the guitar, realize that to get better, you have to invest the time and effort that the skill requires. The guitar is a magnificent instrument and once you learn the basics, it will amaze you with it's intuitiveness and fluidity.
That said, I always recommend that new players take at least a few professional lessons, a good teacher can teach proper practice techniques and show you the basics that you must master to succeed on your own if you choose that route. Above all, make the most of your practice time. 30 minutes of good practice two days a week is better than practising everyday with no clear goals. Secondly, seek out other players, I think you'll find that we take care of our own.
Good luck Dave, and if you need any insight, feel free to drop me a line, I'm happy to help.
