French numbers

Has anyone had any luck not thinking of French numbers from 70 through 99 as "sixty" or "fourscore"/"eighty" plus something? Does anyone else have this problem? That is, every time I hear or say one of these numbers, I'm doing addition in my head because that's how I learned it, instead of just spitting out the number like I do in every other language.

Yes, I also do addition in my mind to say one of those numbers.
