Need Help, I hate Cycling

My wife got me a fairly nice bike but when I took it out on the trails with a group I found that the gears would grind. I asked the group leader, an experience rider, about the problem and he said that he simply wouldn't use those combination of gears. Now I understand that you are not supposed to habitually use the "Extremes" of small to large gear ratio's but I do use them in passing from time to time and I expect them to work.

Am I wrong about this?? Is it normal for the chain to grind against another part when I use a certian combination??
