How did it restrict your opportunities? Also, at what age did you start thinking that it did?

comment When should I allow a child to swear?
@Torben - I think that wisely used curse words enhance the language. Also, I mean 'child' in biological sense, so the answer can be 21+ or whatnot. Plus I don't say "ouch" when I drop something on my foot. It would be hypocritical of me to scold someone for swearing in a similar situation. However, I'm trying to decide at what age or milestone it becomes 'okay' to use the words.

There ought to be a room in every house to swear in. It's dangerous to have to repress an emotion like that. Mark Twain, a Biography Also, your answer says "before they are 18". That is not "never" ;) However, why the distinction? Would a 17 year old still be in trouble, even though the level of understanding is pretty much the same?
