It’s been 21 days and I now declare the nasty habit broken.

Finally made it to 7 days without swearing (only took me about 30 days to get there!) That’s the longest spell so far. I still won’t call it done until I’ve gone 21 straight days. Doesn’t seem like long ago I was sounding like a trucker.
The rain in spain falls mainly on the plain.
Should have been day 6 today. Then some crazy jerk was in our office yelling obscenities at my poor coworker for an hour. Someone else asked me what his problem was and I fliply replied “he’s an a**hole”. Then I banged my head on the wall for my lack of discipline. The women who had asked me the question was all “no – it doesn’t count, it wasy my fault”. Not really sure how it was her fault, but I guess she felt pretty bad for me. Well, back to Day 1 tomorrow.
Yay, I’m back to day 4. Had to stop myself a couple of times today, but no cussing. I decided to stay away from the people at work who create stress. Seems to be a good strategy.
My problem is that I often have members of the public swear at me and get threatening (at work). Then I have to repeat what they said to my coworkers. So I swore again today, as in “the client yelled f* off…”. I should have said “eff off”, but I’m still going to count today as a day without swearing, even if it is a bit of a cop out.
At the end of day 6, not long after making my last entry, my computer crashed and I told it to do something nasty. Then I covered my mouth and cringed while yelling “NO NO NO NOOOOO!” into my hand. So I was going to start fresh today, but ended up swearing while talking to someone who never swears. I don’t know if I’ll ever master this goal. Starting again tomorrow at Day 1.
Never thought I would make it this far. I did start to mutter the “F” word under my breath yesterday, but stopped myself & nobody heard, so I’m not counting it. I got through a ridiculous meeting today (about feelings) by writing DON’T SWEAR – 6 DAYS on a piece of paper and staring at it. What a horrible nasty habit.
Happily I had a 3 day weekend, so now I’m on Day 4 of no swearing. I hope I can get through the day at work tomorrow without any cussing.
I almost only swear at work & have had a terrible time stopping. Today, by happy coincidence, all the burned out, negative, whiny, miserable & crabby people were off work. What a happy place and I got through the whole day without swearing, no effort. Getting through the weekend should be a breeze, so I’m starting my 21 days to break a habit today. Hopefully, my now better understanding of the source of my cursing will help me to stop.
It’s supposed to be 21 days to break a habit, so I figured I’ll set a goal each day to make it through that day without swearing. Started today & had 3 swears out by noon. I think I need to put this goal on hold for a week and start fresh when a certain work related idiocy comes to an end. Maybe I’ll just make the effort not to use the f-word this week.
