    I keep saying 'same' as a reply to people. It's a bit of an automatic response. Normally it's fine but I was talking to someone the other day and she said, "I'm turning 48 next month," and it nearly slipped out, I only just stopped myself in time.

    Any suggestions for how I can stop, or what I could say instead?

    Similar to people saying "like" all the time.

    I guess the more you think about and notice it, the more you may be able to stop yourself from saying it and eventually you may no longer be under the influence of thy cursed word.

    I've been trying that and I think it's working. Thank you

    I don't use it with everything, just lots of things. So if someone says that they feel really good today, I might say 'same'. "I want a sandwich, I feel hungry." "Same." I saw a goose by the canal once and it was standing there, looking into the distance, looking like it was thinking about life, and I thought 'same'. Maybe I just have lots of similarities with other people.

    It's probably natural for us because we like to connect with people and so look to find similarities.

    I guess try to think more of a creative response if that makes sense, instead of hearing whatever is said, thinking "I could share the situation" and then blurting out "same"

    Guess it might be a filler instead of something that I've thought about deeply. Might be saying it because I'm not really engaged in whatever conversation it is. 'You're right' seems like a good replacement.
