Seahunt's points are well taken and if you follow his advice as to practice and interest / commitment, you'll probably still be diving and enjoying it when you're our age.

Skip any 'resort' or 'instant' course - you're too intelligent and sophisticated for that route anyway. Find an instructor who'll enforce classroom training, pool work, and most of all a lot of diving during training (beach and boat and hopefully some cold water also). Practice and practice some more, so it becomes second nature.

Keep fit and never panic (learn to recognize and deal with problems). Understand teh physics, physiology, and techniques of diving and dive as often as you can.
