Anyone else find themselves swearing a lot? I personally curse like a sailor irl, just about every other word I drop the f-bomb. Just recently I've been trying to tone down the cursing a bit, which is going along smoothly. I just feel like my sentences sound much more educated and thoughtful when I don't say at least 5 swears a sentence.

I realize swears are just... words, but iunno. I just feel like they're... childish, at least when used constantly.

I feel like if you use them too often you lose your impact. I use it sparsely and only in a comical or confrontational manner in limited situations.

I swear a little bit. To me it makes no difference. Just words. Context is all that matters to me. Not your choice of vocabulary.

Swearing when used naturally enhances a conversation, even when used constantly,cussing doesn't even need to have an impact. If your around someone who doesn't cuss it can be a little awkward though x3

Depends on who is listening. You obviously want to sound literate and proper during a job interview. With friends during a night of bar hopping? That's a different story.

I pretty much only curse around friends that curse. Once you consciously do this a few times, it becomes an easy habit to maintain.

When talking with friends, I used to swear a lot. As I got a little older, it kinda dropped. I try to to swear as much though, even around friends.

I tend to curse a lot but I know when not to and lately I've been trying to cut back. I tend to say a lot of things that are just plain wrong, but only around people who I know are okay with it.

Occasionally. Usually to be funny or something like that lol, but never in public

I don't really swear, but I can't help but laugh and cringe somewhat at the people that do in almost every sentence.

I try to watch out for myself doing it too much. It's something akin to when people (albeit wrongly) use the word 'like' too much in their speech. Once or twice every few sentences and I'll let you off, but when you say it 5 times per sentence it gets a little grating. I do swear, even when I probably shouldn't, but not extensively.
