Count to ten. Relax, Then do this. There is a knob on the handle side of the reel. Tie on what ever bait u want then hold the rod at a 45 degree angle up. Now while holding the spool with ur thumb, push the cast botton down. Ok so now the spool is disengaed but u still have a hold of the spool, so the bait is still not moving. Now let of on the spool lightly (still holding the rod at a 45.). If the bait fall free, stop the spool with ur thumb before it hit the ground!!!!!! Now turn the handle to engage the spool again.

OK relax, what u want to do is tight the knob on the hadle side till the bait will not fall by itself. Make it tight enough so that u have to reallllly shake the rod for the bait too fall a foot or so. Now turn the breaks on the other side ALL the way on. Mag or Centrifigal no matter, just all the way on!.
Now try casting it with a smooth underhand stroke. Like swinging a golf club but a little higher. U want to have contact with the spool and thumb ALL the time, when u are starting out. NEVER leg go of the spool completely!!!
U wana develop a "feel" for the spool and visually get a feeling for it. ALWAYS stop it with ur finger BEFORE is hits the ground.

As u get comfortable u can turn down the weights and loosen the spool tension knob.

Take it slow u'll get it.

You will get it follow Mad's plan and everything will be ok. In fact you may in time think this is so easy and then help someone else learn how to us it as well. Thumbs Up
