Stopping really comes with comfort on your edges. All you can do is keep practicing until you get it right. Remember that when stopping with your left foot forward you're using the inside edge of your left blade and the outside edge of your right blade.

To me it sounds like you're hesistant and nervous about falling, so you're making a slow and deliberate turn with your foot which results in a turn. Like somebody else here said... it works better when you don't think about it. Just skate in a straight line and STOP.
