You'll find that by continually placing your focus on the breath and the sensations of the body, the mind will go about the business of downloading everything it is not immediately concerned with, so don't try to stop the mind from thinking. The mind thinks, that's what a mind does, so don't ever expect to be totally without thoughts. As long as you avoid involvement in what your thoughts are saying, they will become less intense, and eventually change into meaningless static at the back of your mind.

- From Happiness to Burn by Roger Wells

A great free book about meditation with an EXTREMELY Western slant. I love all the scientific explanation of why meditation really works. Check it out. What do you have to lose other than your Self? :)
