Ok so I am trying very hard to censor my self. its hard for me as I am normally one to use a lot of fowl language. I laugh because my grandmother always told people she had a husband and two sons in the navy and her granddaughter is the one who curses like a sailor. I have read the rules and it seems that I am not aloud to swear on her or purposely miss spell a word to match what it is in my head. So this is a challenge for me as i just got a call from my little sister telling me about the next bone head thing her well what ever that thing she is married to is. I'm kinda proud of myself. I didn't say one well ok there was one but other than that nothing was said out of context. Just wondering does anyone else have a hard time breaking bad habits and if so what was the hardest one you have ever had to break. cursing is mine as you can see

I do have a few bad habbits that need to be broken. I do curse alot as well. But the big thing that i need to break is smoking. I need to do that as i promissed some one that i would right before they passed away so it is one of those i feel like i have to.

smoking, from my experience, is probably one of the hardest bad habits a person has to break. i have come across many reasons for a person not to be able to quit, one of the biggest reasons it doesnt work. my mom gave up smoking and i am proud to say she has been smoke free for several months now. the advice i gave her was to not make up her mind till the full moon. that if she was serious about quieting she needed to do it on the full moon. it worked for her and if you are serious about it it may work for you. good luck to you.

@AmethystD Oh that sounds interesting. But if you do not mind me asking what is the deal with the fullmoon. why do it on that night.

that's an awesome habit to break. congratulations to you if you were able to stop smoking. i have been trying to quit smoking for years and every time i do i always go back to it. one day maybe ill give up my excuses and just do it. but im not to that point yet. one step at a time you know.

when one has a great vocabulary one doesnt need to use fowl language - Adjectives and adverbs are the best way to give colourful meaning to any expression even when its one of anger. I am not sure if you have seen the movie Notting Hill - well when Hugh Grant says "whoopsie daisy" she laughs - but in actual fact he could have said a few curse words, but whoopsie daisy was gentler . Give the adjectives a try

@AmethystD well it actually is a way of life, so if you tone it down when she is around, you probably will do so all the time eventually

My worst bad habit is eating too much chocolate and it's very hard for me to break.
