STOP SAYING LIKE, LIKE ALL THE TIME, LIKE CONSTANTLY, LIKE SHUT UP

I’m going to try to stop using “like”.  Ok, I don’t use it like I’m a Kardashian or anything, but I’m 63 years old for crap sakes, I shouldn’t be using it at all, except for the correct usage.  When I was a teenager everyone said “you know” all the time.  I don’t remember people saying “like”, I wonder when that started?
The correct usage of “like” is enjoyment and similarity.

When trying to analyze when I say it the most I’ve determined that I use it mostly to approximate.  “It’s like 3 miles to the dentist’s office”.  Instead of “It’s about 3 miles to the dentist’s office”.
I’m not even going to start on “stuff” and “actually”, one word is enough for now.  I’ve read that one way to stop saying it is to just totally cut it out of conversation all together.  Don’t know if I can go that far but we’ll see.
It’s funny, I don’t write using those words, wonder what’s up with that?  Well, that’s like it for now, so I’ll keep you updated on how it goes.
