I thought thumb sucking was illegal and you could get arrested if you didn't stop sucking it. So i stopped sucking my thumb so i wouldn't get arrested.

I used to think your thumb would start to rot at night everytime I sucked my thumb each day, and then my thumb would fall off and I'll never grow back a new one

My mom told me that your thumb would turn green and fall off in your sleep if you sucked your thumb too much. I believed this until I was 10.

I used to believe that if you suck your thumb too much, it would fall off the next day. My mom told me that to prevent me from sucking my thumb and I never sucked my thumb again. I'm 20 and am still afraid to suck my thumb. I will tell my future kids that if they don't stop sucking their thumb

So, I'm 14 and suck my thumb. My mother made a small attempt to make me stop when we moved at the age of 5. She told me that in the new house, I couldn't suck my thumb when I was downstairs or in her bed. She said that if I did, I would be kicked out. This did not work and I sucked my thumb in her bed secretly every time I slept with her. She had also told me what most parents say. It will make my thumb shrink or pop off or turn into a permanent prune. My father also made the attempt to get me to stop. He introduced me to a friend of his who didn't have a thumb. His friend said that he didn't have a thumb because he sucked it off! Well my fathers plan backfired and I decided I only wanted one thumb. So here I am at age 14 sucking my thumb. Two thumbs up for me!

My mom got me into a habbit of sucking my thumb so I wouldn't use a binky. I thought that made me a grown-up so I kept on sucking until I was ten and now I have braces/

When I was about 5, my father told me if I were to keep sucking on my thumb, it would grow bigger than the other. To this day, I meassure the length of my thumbs to see if they are even!

One of my friends had an uncle who lost part of his thumb in an accident. He tricked her into thinking that he could take it off and put it back on whenever he wanted (using a similar trick to 'Got-your-nose' to convince her.) Apparently she did not notice that he never had his entire thumb on him. Then he told her that the reason he could do this was that he had sucked his thumb non-stop for a whole night once, and in the morning his thumb just fell off. She, of course, wanted to have this special ability to remove a part of her hand at will, so she tried it. Disappointment is a sad thing...

IF you suck you thumb to much it will come off. Right? I thought this for years.

I used to believe that if you sucked your thumb to much that it would fall off or you would have a wrinkled grandma thumb so I never sucked my thumb if I had a choice. My mom said I never used to suck my thumb when I was a baby. I stand by that till this very day and my nieces and nephews dont suck their thumbs either and not that I believe it anymore I am thankful just in case! Ha Ha Ha.

When my daughter was 3 I told her that when kids got to big for pacifiers they started tasting bad. About 1 week later I painted every one of her pacifiers with that horrible tasting thumb sucking stuff. She walked around holding a pacifier for about two weeks, but didn't suck it. She believed she had become a big girl when they all tasted bad. She believed this until she was about nine.
