    I used to be cautious to the utmost degree whenever I spoke.
    I used to be extremely (extraordinarily) cautious (reserved) in my speech.
    ....................................................................................in my conversations.
    ....................................................................................when (whenever) I spoke.

    Precise wording would depend on specific context. (Otherwise, take your pick).

    I think he meant 'reserved' not 'cautious'.
    I made my reservations very clear when I spoke to him.
