I hate to admit it but I have a very bad problem with swearing during matches or when I do stuff wrong. I dont swear at others or anything its just when I miss the football, especially when I miss shots at goal, I cant help swearing, I dont even have time to think about it it just happens, I'm worried that this will get me into trouble in P.E, or anywhere eles in fact :(

I've already swore twice really loudly in P.E. I dont think she'll let me off getting a detension if it happens again :(

I have trouble too. Maybe a good idea would be to reward yourself when you don't swear. Maybe just think of that reward instead of swearing and say something else. I think that's what I'm going to try to do. 8)

I have occasional trouble with this when I'm particularly frustrated. "What the hell is this, Sir?" is not the best way to ask for help. :wink:

Good luck with soccer. :) Are you from the US? It seems like only you and I call it soccer, that's why I was wondering.

No I'm Irish, but here's where it gets confusing ya see over here most of the English call it football, but there's also Gaelic football which is sort of different :?
Gaelic football is different because you can take three steeps with the football in your hand then you have to ether (a) bounce it off the ground, you can only do that twice or (b) kick it off your foot and hope it goes back in your hand, you can do that three times, and you can score points as well as goals.
So at the momment I'm not sure which game I'm playing, I just hope I'm not to bad. Sorry about the long explanation, I'm not great at explaning am I? :)

No, actually you explained it pretty well. :D I have heard of Gaelic football before. Maybe it's because I'm partially Irish. :D
