    What is a good way to stop cusing? I have an addiction and don't know when I say a cuss word.

    This is a hard thing to do. I also would use words without even realizing I used them. How I stopped was thinking about what I was going to say instead of just habitually speaking. I was influenced by my family and friends that would stop me if they heard a bad word from my mouth. It was hard, but I finally broke the habit.

    In addition to thinking carefully about what you say before you say it, maybe you could find someone to whom you could be accountable. This person could check on you daily to find out if you use a cuss word . You could also agree to what should be done if you use a cuss word.

    You could try listening to others when they speak and making a mental note of whenever they use a cuss word. Keep doing this (especially with your friends) and eventually you'll start doing it to yourself. You'll begin noticing when you use a cuss word.

    Try using different words as well. Replace one of your more common swears with a less intense swear word.

    Lastly, think about when you are using these words. If you use them when you're frustrated or angry, focus on being less so. If you tend to use these words most of the time, ask someone to mention whenever you say a cuss word. Having them acknowledge it out loud to you can help make you aware of when you say them.

    Hope this helps!

    it also has a lot to do with your surrounding enviroment. I've noted a lot of cussing in myself when i'm around a certain group of individuals. when i'm away the cussing ends.

    Work for a daycare. You'll stop cursing so often real quick. I had to.

    Try recording a conversation you have and playing it back to yourself. This may make you a little more conscientious of your language.

    If you ever could hear youself cussing, you would stop real quick. The occasional one  is fine, but if your constantly doing it, try to break the routine.

    Try to think of another word when the occasion come up where you need to curse, it won't be easy and will take a lot of practice to get your mind to change. Also say to the people around you about how your trying to stop it and tell them to call you on it, again if they comment on it to you, you will then try not to curse around them, thus reducing the occurance.
