23 and looking for a starting point

|Includes:Abbott Laboratories (ABT), AOD, EMR, JNJ

I'm 23 and looking for a good starting point when it comes to investing in Dividend stock. I plan on only reinvesting the div. payout back into the stocks. Sense I'm new at this and the only one in the family that plans on Investing in stocks I was hoping for some good advice. Thinking about investing in ABT for long-term sense it has a strong div growth rate but I don't have a large lump sum to invest. Currently I take $100 out of my paycheck a week for the purpose of investing.

Like I said I'm 23, just trying to think of my future because working 60hrs a week for the rest of my life isn't an enjoyable life.

Thanks for any help given
