How do you stop from saying bad words?


Okay, I read Careful What You Say, and I have to ask: what do we say when we can't say any of those words? What if I'm trying to stop, but it's such a habit it slips out sometimes, outloud and even in my head? I say it even if I don't mean to. I want to stop now that I know all of that is wrong to say, but I don't know, it seems difficult.


We don't make changes in our lives because it is the easiest thing to do. Changes are made because it is the right thing to do, even if those changes can be a struggle.

I find it easier to say nothing at all. The vast majority of the time the words are just empty filler, giving no additional meaning to the sentence being said. If I hurt myself, I say "ouch!"

If you find you make a slip, then apologize to God and work a bit harder at controlling your tongue. "For we all stumble in many things. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body" (James 3:2). in other words, mastering controlling your words also means you have gained the ability to have self-control in other areas of your life as well.
