    I hardly ever swear but when I get excited or annoyed the occasional swear word will come out. I know it is not attractive. How can I stop this?

    Who's to say swearing isn't attractive? Attraction is so subjective.

    Well I certainly find it repulsive.

    Exactly my point, subjective. You find it repulsive, others might not. I agree with you that constantly swearing in every sentence is off-putting, but the occasional slip like the OP is talking about is normal and nothing to be ashamed about. Unless it happens in front of your grandma or something. Again, subjective. My opinion different to yours. Just depends on the person.

    Try replacing swear words with ridiculous, similar sounding words

    In certain situations, it is frowned upon.
    You're right, we don't all find it repulsive. But there's nothing at all wrong with the OP trying to cut out swearing, because it can give the wrong impression.
