How much do you weigh? Depending on your weight you should change how sharp your skates are and make sure you tie your skates nice and tight. I notice a lot of beginners are afraid to really tighten the laces on their skates because they are too sharp and loose skates keep them in a slanted position all the time so they feel like they won't lose an edge while stopping. After you get your sharpness right go out and work up to a hockey stop, until you get there there is nothing wrong with dragging a skate behind you to stop like you have to on rollerblades.
