If I was to say to someone (in regard to helping them), " I can't not do it!" is this an example of poor English.?

    Yes, the double negative definitely sounds awkward in that exclamation.

    You can try something like

    I can't keep myself from doing it!

    or

    I can't stop myself from doing it!
