First go to a shop and get skates properly fitted, and then attend a few public skate sessions. Search online for some instructional videos, and do some dryland stickhandling with a ball at home. Once you are competent enough on your skates (not falling, being able to at least do a snowplow stop), sign up for a beginner adult hockey class. Also go to stick and puck, aka Gretzky hour to work on your stickhandling, shot and dodging the hundreds of children running around out there. Avoid going to drop-in until you're comfortable with doing all these things at the same time - you'll get in the way and it won't be any fun for you.
Good luck and have fun! It takes a lot of practice but it's totally worth it.
