I have trouble restraining myself from swearing if I'm by myself and get frustrated/angry at something (usually an inanimate object), if it's with other people I seem to be able to control swearing. If I'm with people who don't mind swearing then I'll let maybe one thing slip out (in an appropriate circumstance am not one to just throw F's around for no reason) but then feel guilty cause I might be the only one in the pairing or group that day that has sworn in public, aloud, and think to myself not to do it again, basically I tend to think like this and try not to swear in public. In highschool around the age of 13, I was completely anti-swearing and was listening to a girl in my year's cd and the lyrics from the band had swearing and I said rather condescendingly but joking, "Oooo, I think I heard swearing..." and she grabbed the cd player back, rolled her eyes and told me to shut up, haha. As the years went on, I listened to music with swearing in it (even that band!) and didn't care and thought it can actually be a good way of expressing and releasing anger creatively. If people swear then that's okay, but if they do it way too much just for the hell of it then not a fan of that and hate it when you're watching a tv show or listening to radio/music and they censor/bleep the swear words, block them out with silence or replace them with silly replacement words that don't even sound right in the swear word's place.

I hardly ever swear. To the point where people who know me are shocked on the rare occasions when I do. My mother would NEVER allow any sort of bad language in the house, and even as I got older that stuck with me (all of my friends' parents thought I was the most polite person on the planet.)
I don't mind other people swearing, or swearing in movies/TV/books/etc, but I hardly ever do it myself.
