I guess since 18, i've progressively tried to reduce to the stage of complete elimination any degree of profanity from my vocabulary.
I thought it always dumbed down my vocabulary to being more simplistic (i. e i could replace actual words with swear slurs). It felt immature and unprofessional to me so I am glad that I barely if ever use a swear word now

I swear a lot, I do not see why people think it is supposed to indicate a lack of intelligence, but that's what stupid people say when they don't have a counter argument.
I don't think there is anything wrong with swearing in your personal life, I am very adept at switching it off though. Having worked with the public for a number of years I can easily go into work mode and not swear.
If anything I swear more now than when I was younger. I've learnt so many new expletives, seems a shame not to utilise them!0

Growing up, I didn't really swear all that much. I would never swear in front of my parents because that crap would probably get me crap like the belt when I was younger, and I never realls swore in front of friends because I saw no point to adding it into my vocab. I honestly have no care that someone swears arround me, but I feel they start to use their meaning if you swear too much.
Because of that, I've only sworn either when alone or when I'm pretty angry.0
