Is your cursing and cussing out of control? Stop the profanity with this behavior modification plan.

Step 1: Realize why you're cursing
Realize why you're swearing: it's often just a lazy way of expressing rage or frustration. Learn other anger management coping skills and you may not be so tempted to curse so much.

Step 2: Hear how unattractive it is
Pay attention the next time someone else lets a few choice words rip. Is that really how you want to sound to others?

Step 3: Learn some new words
Scan a thesaurus for satisfying stand-ins for your favorite swear words. A good vocabulary allows you to be as cutting and colorful as you want to -- without the foul language.

Tip
Try using silly substitutes, like "fudge" and "fiddle-dee-dee." You'll feel so stupid, you'll probably swear off swearing.

Step 4: Imagine an audience
The next time you're on the verge of a four-letter tirade, ask yourself if you'd use this language around a young child, an elderly person, or a clergy member. That should stop the swearing.

Step 5: Go ahead
Go ahead and drop the F-bomb -- if you're in pain. A group of researchers concluded that cursing intensifies our fight-or-flight response, making us better able to withstand pain by minimizing our perception of it. Guess that explains all the swearing in hospital delivery rooms!

Did You Know?
Often, people who speak more than one language report that they always curse in their native tongue.
