  • Think before you speak??? Or everytime you call someone a name take away something from yourself lol Like a cupcake, or whatever you eat.

  • try thinking before you talk, and im not trying to be a bitch im serious, i had the same problem. and if it slipps out figure out a way to punish yourself or someone to do it for you. like running laps or not eating chocolate or something. it sounds dumb but it worked for me

  • Honestly, it's just immature and you don't want to be that way, that's why you're asking. Count to ten right before you blow and walk away. It's not cool of your dh either. Both of you need to knock it off and find a better way of fighting. Good luck though. I myself do thoroughly enjoy a good F bomb every once in a while. Sad but true!

  • count to 10 before you speak to anyone at anytime during a fight or disagreement, even a normal conversation...sounds extreme but if you really cant control it thats how you try.
    count to 10 before you say one word, you will be amazed how much more thoughtful you become, and how much less you hurt others.
