I always used to suck my left thumb!! until I was quite old I am ashamed to say! My Mum persuaded me to give up this habit by telling me if I kept sucking my thumb it would end up falling off!

My uncle's thumb was blown off by a grenade in the Korean war. When I was little, he told me that he had sucked it off to get me to stop sucking my thumb.

When I was about 5 my mom made we wear a glove so I wouldn't suck my thumb. I saw my grandmother wearing gloves one Sunday and assumed she too sucked her thumb and called her out on it.

I had a really bad habit of sucking my thumb, and I sucked it until I was 9 years old. (the only reason I stopped was because of an expander in my mouth. There just wasn't room for my thumb anymore!) My grandpa used to tell me all the time that if I kept sucking my thumb, I would grow a monkey's tale!! It just made me suck it more

When I was little I believed that my double jointed "hitch hikers" thumbs were because of I sucked it so much and my left thumb goes back so it my thumb looks straight and my right thumb goes back less and I remember sucking my left thumb more so I thought it was because of sucking it.

I used to suck my thumb and my friend told me if I keep doing that then my thumb would disappaer. Didnt stop me sucking it though, I always thought of how cool it would be to see your own thumb disappear. I was a weird kid.

When my sister was little, she used to suck her thumb. My mom and dad tried to get her out of the habit, so my older sister and I figured we'd help... and give her nightmares.
We told her a story about a man who sucked his thumb and about how he was homeless because nobody liked him for it. We told of how one day, he had to go to the hospital beacuse his thumb started bleeding and how it fell off. Everday, we would add on to the story of this man's thumb. To this day, she won't even look at her thumb.

My sister and parents were constantly trying to get me to stop sucking my thumb years ago. I used to believe when they said 'Sonya, stop sucking your thumb' it meant they wanted me to suck my big toe instead. It never tasted right.

I've always sucked my thumb (I'm 13 now), and for a while I thought that when you sucked your thumb some sort of something in your saliva was slowly eating away at your skin.

Actually, I'm not convinced that's not true. I mean, why else do you get those cuts?

In Kindergarten i believed that if you sucked on your thumb it'd shrink and one day end up all shrivelled and small.

When I was little I would always be sucking on my thumb. I couldn't fall asleep without sucking on it. But one day my mom and my dad sat me down and told me if I didn't stop I would have teeth like bugs bunny. This scared me but I still continued to do it. They tried everything from putting pepper on it to making me wear mittins. I guess they were right about the bugs bunny teeth, because here I am at 16 still sucking my thumb and I have buck teeth. (I still need to suck my thumb to be able to fall asleep at night) Shhhhhhhh!
