    I used to swear like the proverbial trooper, but recently I've started doing it a lot less. I think its because since coming to uni I've become a lot more laid back. I've met so many highly strung people that I've become relaxed just to counterbalance them. Still, once I get going every other word is a profanity. C word laden insult strings are a regrettable habit.

    I swear ALOT. I've tried to control it, but it's damn near impossible.

    I used to never swear.
    Then I started thinking the cr- word and equivalents.
    Then I started using those words.
    At a similar time I started thinking the s- word etc.
    Then, I started using these, but not f- or c-.
    Then I started using the f- word, but I drew the line at c-.
    Recently, I met a guy who I now refer to as his-name,c- and general misery and anger has led to a lot of very bad language!
    I think if I was happier and more positive I'd swear less.

    I swear more than I should, it's just a bad habit I can't kick. IRL I have to try to curb it when I'm around my family, which is sometimes difficult. XD

    Sometimes if I'm real angry, not a lot though, try not to.

    Swearing is bad enough; blasphemy is inexcusable.
    I curse God daily.

    I need to wash out my mouth with bleach twice a day. I don't really care though.

    Except for when talking to my parents, I can't swear in front of them for some reason.

    It's jokes when posh people swear, I think they can pull it off fine, when I was doing work experience at a law firm one of the senior partners swore a fair bit, so funny in his posh Oxford student voice.

    Like a trooper. I really should try to tone it down a wee bit.

    I swear an awful lot. I also use the most offensive (well, most offensive to most people) word "the c-word" as an affectionate term.
    I should do something about it really, but I like it.

    I didn't think I swore that much but my new flatmates at uni seem to think I do.
    & I do sometimes use the C word, because personally I think it's just the same as any swear word, I said it here once when I was a bit annoyed & my flatmates were in utter shock!!

    Not too much. If I drop something or hurt myself, but not very often in normal conversation. I'd never swear in front of my parents though.

    It's pretty bad with me. I do it unconsciously.. I've let the sentences 'Ophelia really is a whiny b****' and 'Shut the f*** up while I'm talking, you little sh**s" slip in formal presentations at school. I usually swear quite badly when a teacher asks me for work I forgot all about, which doesn't help my situation.

    Yes, but I think Scottish people just suit it more, like on Mock The Week.
    We just make it sound nicer.
