I don't recommend Java. What I recommend you learn, is Objective-C, because it has very similar methods and definitions in there to the English language. I'm the same age as you, been programming since last year just about, and now, I'm pretty darn good at it. You can also make Mac and iPhone apps for it, and there are a lot more videos on YouTube for it. I'm self taught, no person taught me how to do it, no books, just the internet, and YouTube. Trust me, once you understand some of it, you won't need videos to know how to do something new.

I learnt it mainly in university. But that only worked so much.
I put a lot of time in using the book 'Ivor Horton's Beginning Java 2: JDK 5 Edition'. It has loads of good examples and sample code on the website. A lot of it still applied to the newer Java versions.
There are also loads of online tutorials from lots of places and sample code that you can use to help you learn. I did not use any one as I simply searched for things that I wanted to know. However a site such as http://www.roseindia.net/java/
You can also download the NetBeans IDE (integrated development environment) that might help you.
Eclipse is also really good to write your code in.
