I wish I could stop fucking swearing...

...Or maybe not.   It's a conundrum.  On the one hand, it's a marvellous form of expression, lending, (when well used) marvellous shades of strength and humour to a text.  On the other, as Charmaine Bucco observed, you lose the moral high ground as soon as you curse.  Indeed.  And what sounds funny in The Sopranos can fall flat on its face in the staff room, (though the person referred to was a far worse case than Minnie Matrone).
