How can I stop cussing?

I'm a christen and I love God. I love to listen to christen music. But I'm keeping on cussing/cursing. I sometimes pull out the middle finger. :( I'm so afraid that I'll end up in the devil's cave and not in heaven when I die. :( How can I stop doing this nasty stuff that'll break Gods heart?

Just stop...
You could try wearing a rubber band on your wrist and every time you cuss snap it really hard.

i read the bible many times and i went to church when i was little, and i realized that it's a waste of time... not trying to offend people, just my opinion... i don't belive that god exist, only that it's a waste of time, because you have no proof of god

HEAVEN AND HELL ARE BOTH REAL... GET RIGHT WITH GOD, FOLLOW HIS FOOT STEPS, READ HIS WORD, AND PRAY!!! And when you die, and you stand infront of God one day, hopefully, you'll here the words, "Well done good and faithfull servent!"

well please do... ''tommorow i will see how people get convinced that there is a only one creator''
The bible is made from humans not from god... religion exist for power... and power the priest get when they convince people like you that god exist and you have to pay to go to ''heaven''
Like I said to you, religion is not reality but an opinion... so you can't try to show me the reality when i explained it to you
THERE IS NO GOD HEAVEN OR HELL
and dannie105 BURN IN HELL,,, oh yeah i forgot... it's doesn't EXIST
Report as
How do you know that u go into a deep sleep when u die?
Report as
you have no control over your body and mind when you are not alive anymore... it's like deep-sleep ( it's seems like only 30 minutes from the time you went to bed till the time you woke up) and i specificly say deep sleep because when you sleep, you may have dreams but deep sleep is disconnects your mind from your body so it can regenerate... but you can't regenerate when you're dead so you never wake up

I know swearing can become more of a habit or you can say a bad habit once you develop it. Try using different words to express your actions. Think of less offensive words that doesn't lead to cussing.

Like Dannie said, try not to watch inappropriate movies, and if your friends cuss, maybe try asking them to stop or do not hang out with them as much. I've noticed when I am around people who cuss for a while, I have to think more about what I'm saying.

Make a deal: Tell your friends and family that every time they hear you swear, you have to pay them. Start with maybe 25 cents, or if your swearing problem is really bad, up the amount of money. Hope this helps!

Put a rubber band on your wrist. Every time you cuss pop it. It will break you of the habit fairly quickly.

Cursing robs you of your vocabulary and makes you sound ignorant, that should be enough motivation to stop...The middle finger? do it to the wrong person and it could get broke!

God says if you believe in him you are going to heaven. But still, it makes him sad. I think all the other suggestions are good I'd try the rubber band

Yes it is!!! Just read the bible
Report as
nah its not. modern day curse words were not know back when the bible was wrote. look at it this way, you smash your finger and you say SH!T. are you wrong? No, because your not calling someone a piece of SH!T your just saying a commonly used word for something that has happened. its how you use "words" that is a sin. i can pretty much guess that the person that posted this question doesn't curse anyone out he/she uses the "bad words". so for the sake of answering his/her question your not sinning your just saying words. TheMan346 i like your type of people your the type that reads something and use the generic interpretation instead of using your own brain and creating your own hence why you will never amount to anything other then the follow the leader and do as your told.
Report as
haha i just realized your the person that posted the question TheMan346. i meant everything i had said in a different context. so don't worry your going to be fine just don't curse anyone out to demoralize them.
Report as
I think most curse words originated from regular words, mostly meaning bodily functions. For instance SH** means waste, so does crap, and P***. Damn means to send someone to hell, and F*** means rape. Ass originally meant donkey, but now usually means butt.

Most of these words are not used in that context anymore, they are used to express anger, frustration or just plain slang. However most of them aren't very nice sounding, or clean words. And whether or not it is actually a sin to talk that way or not, it's well known in our society to be rude and offensive.

I think it matters most what your intention is in using those words. I think there are always better words to choose, and even if they aren't actually a sin it's immature to use them and is either ungentlemanly and unladylike. I think there are better ways to portray what you are trying to say, and there are nice words to use that don't constantly refer to nasty bodily functions or bad acts.

Quite frankly cursing all the time sounds illiterate.
Report as
umm just saying but maybe he wants to stop i am cristian myself and i believe even saying frick and crap is bad but not really bad because my friends got me into saying those but i want to stop and even a** is bad in my mind ...it all depends on the person,if you want to swear then go ahead its just getting yourself into a bad habit and if you dont want to like i do then stop, do the rubber band if you already swear....thats my opinion......
Report as
I agree bunny girl. And it was also pretty clear in his question that he wasn't asking whether it was bad or not, he already thinks it is, he was asking advice about HOW he can stop, so telling him it isn't bad isn't answering the question.

Just shut your mouth and don't say the words...don't even think the words because then you run the risk of speaking them. It's a matter of training and self control.

Well, Adam and Eve didn't listen to Classical music either, or Oldies. Just being rap doesn't make it bad, what makes it bad is the meaning in it, what is being said, and the message it is sending.

Try to surround yourself with better people, start listening to only Christian music, and other clean music, stop watching anything bad, start watching Christian movies every week. These things will constantly remind you of the Lord, and being around people who want to do the Lords will, will keep your mind clean, and keep you from wanting to go back to doing those things. It's a process, but if you are willing to let go of those other things, it will make a big difference in your walk with the Lord :)

There's nothing wrong with classical, some people prefer Christian music though. It's just a personal preferance.
Report as
Because he is trying to stop cursing. I said "OR other clean music" which includes classical or any other song that is clean. I originally wrote classical, I never meant for life, but sometimes it helps a lot to cut those things out of your life for a couple of weeks when you are trying to break a habit, because being surrounded by christian music and people can help a lot.
