This.

I technically started with QuickBASIC in the 80's, but quickly moved to C++. Honestly, the first few chapters of any decent C++ book shouldn't take you more than a few solid hours to wrap your head around, and by then you'll be making some simple programs. In my opinion, if you can't get yourself through a decent size C++ book within about 80 hours (maybe less), and keep a general understanding of the language by that point, you may not be cut out for programming. However, if you know you're never going to need C++, there is no need to start to force yourself to learn C++. I'm simply saying, if you want to learn programming in general, you shouldn't be afraid to start with C++ because of the difficulty. C++ is the most widely used programming language out there, it seems only logical to learn it if you don't know which languages you'll want to know.

+1 for c++.

although i dont understand why people want to start learning programming just to program. having a goal in mind is important.

I would recommend starting with Python....because its an easy language to learn but it has lots of potential. Lot of people learn from reading but its a lot easier to understand by watching. A guy named Bucky has great vids on programming with Python
Here's the link to one of the videos....you can just use that to trace it to the first one
YouTube- Python Programming Tutorial - 7 - More on Strings

Not sure if anyone has mentioned it yet, but I learned all my basic programming skills using BASIC. It's as the name implies, basic, and simple.
