In an attempt to get me to stop sucking my thumb, my parents told me that they passed a new law, and it was now illegal to suck your thumb. They went as far as inviting a cop friend over to the house to scare me. I was so terrified of being arrested and taken to jail, that i quit the next day. I didnt find out until a few years later that it was all a joke.

i used to suck my thumb, & i was about eight when my mom finally said it was enough. She tried everything she put pepper on it, vasiline, gloves, all kinds of stuff and i would still continue to suck my thumb. I finally only sucked it when i was tired or going to sleep. But i never just up and stopped, i kind of grew out of it. I don't really think you can just stop.

When I was around 3 my dad took away my pacifier because he said that it would ruin my teeth. I got so mad I started sucking my thumb in public to embarrass him and ruin my teeth and told him I'd never stop until he gave me back my binky. It became a habit, and he was stubborn, so soon I was 10 and still sucking my thumb. He'd put pepper on my thumb, and I'd start loving spicy food, he'd tell my friends and I wouldn't care. Then I was 15, and I didn't even know why I did it, and kept trying to stop, but I'd wake up with my thumb in my mouth. Now I'm 32, and sometimes my wife wakes up giggling because I'm sucking my thumb...

I used to think that when I covered my mouth while sucking my fingers that mom wouldn't be able to tell. However she'd always yell over to me to take it out of my mouth. And I used to think, "Wow - mom has x-ray powers; she's like superman!"

still sucking fingers 27 years strong!!

Once when I was about 5, my friend told me that if you sucked your thumb it was like watering a plant, and it would grow really big.

I used to think if you sucked on your thumb, it would grow bigger and bigger because it absorbed all your saliva. My mother told me this, and it scared me enough that I never did it.

I used to suck my thumb and my dentist always told me not to. One time she mentioned that my teeth were becomming the same shape as my thumb. Of couse she meant my teeth were starting to stick out to fit my thumb, but I thought she meant my two front teeth looked like thumbs. I was self-concious of my thumb-shaped teeth for years!!

i am now 13 years old and i still suck thumb which sounds ridiculous i know but that didnt stop me neither did the endless stories i got told. it wasn't that i didnt believe them i was young and gullable i just didnt care and wanted to see what would happen & if they were REALLy telling the truth.
One of the stories was that if i sucked my thumb for long enough my teeth would stick out and eventually my whole body would turn into bugs bunny. That sounded really cool to a young girl so i was kinda dissappointed when it didnt happen .

although (and perhaps because) i was never a thumb sucker, I believed that if I sucked hard enough, I could get water to come out of my thumb. in reality, of course, this water was my own saliva.

As a child I used to suck my thumb, that was until my nan told me she knew a little girl who used to suck her thumb as a child and she sucked it so much it went down to the bone and she was left with a bone sticking out of her hand!
