I do it. You do it. We all do it. And we do it for one very simple reason: it works.
It's the snarl of a cornered dog. It's the roar of a caged lion. It's that basic, that elemental, and because of that, we have to acknowledge it's there for a reason: it can release the anxiety we're feeling, or the pain we're suffering, whether physical, mental or emotional. Equally, it can stimulate us into action, raise our hackles, stir our whole body, get our adrenaline running and ready for the fight.
You know it’s true if you don’t swear a lot but someone, somehow makes you really angry – really really f***ing angry – so you can’t think of the words you need to properly explain yourself… And the only words that your mind finds are “F*** you!”
You’ll also know this is true if you've ever stubbed your toe and shouted "F***!" because that wasn't the end of it, was it? All those nerves at the end of your big toe don't calm down quickly, do they? And the shooting, stabbing hurt continues in a second wave and maybe even a third: "F***, f***, f***, f***, f***!" you continue, until the shock starts to diminish.
Some of us who swear more often than others may search our minds for something even ruder to say by this stage, aware that the word drugs aren't working; the "talking cure" as Freud referred to something completely different, isn't strong enough this time.
Those of us who never swear (may struggle with this book!) may get away with a "Dagnabbit" or even a "For crying out loud!" but whatever the words are that you come up with, when you need them, they'll be of a stronger variety than you usually use.
We've all known this, deep down, probably our whole lives, but finally there's evidence: neuro scientists now know what we swearers have known all along, that swearing helps us. It works; it really f***ing does…
