When I was young, my grandmother always told me if I sucked my thumb my teeth would fall out. The day I went for my first dental appointment she pulled her dentures out and said take these for a checkup. I promise, thumbsucking ended immediately. Boy I miss her. What could she tell my bugar picking daughter?

When I was about five I asked my older sister who was nine why she always sucked her thumb. She said that when she sucked her thumb she would get juice out of it. I was so in awe that I stood there and tried it but I didn't get any juice. She said I should keep trying and I did. But then I went to her again and told her I still wasn't getting any juice and she shrugged and said yours must be out before walking away. I remember standing there wanting to cry because of how unfair it was.

i though that if u suck your thumb you color of your skin will go away. I also though it would shirnk so i always mesured it everyday but still I didnt care , my dad always told me that if I kept sucking it my thumb would come off,i was kinda scared but then i just didnt care and today i still suck my thumb and is very amusing and kinda tasty even though it doesnt have a "special taste" that i can tell you.

It was either my Mother or Grandmother who told me when I was very young that if I didn't stop sucking my thumb, it would make my thumbs go flat. They did! Of course, it may just be genetics, but it still didn't stopped me and now I'm 26! Who needs round thumbs anyway?

I used to suck my thumb whilst rubbing cotton wool on my nose (bit wierd). A teacher at school told me that I was inhaling all the cotton wool fibres which would suffocate me during the night. I didn't believe her until one night I had a terrible chest infection. I remember waking up screaming because I thought I was going to die from sucking my thumb! Eek, gives me shivers even now.

My parents use dto tell me that if I kept sucking my thumb I would have buck teeth and everyone would laugh at me. Well my teeth are just fine and though people do laugh, they are laughing with me not at me. I am 21 and still suck my thumb. Thanks mom and dad... love you too. :)

I used to have a major problem with sucking my thumb. Well one day my dad got annoyed with it and told me a story.. "If you suck it too much, you will gnaw off the skin on your thumb and only your bones will be left!!!!" Well that night I immediatly wrapped a sock around my hand and slept with my hand under my pillow to resist the urge!.. I am proud to admit that I havent sucked my thumb since then!:P

My dad told me that my thumb would shrink if I kept sucking it, so for years I would measure it against the other one and as the size was always the same I just carried on sucking it until I was about 15

When I was little I sucked my thumb non stop and my mom told me that if I didn't that the dentist would have to put a rake in my mouth to fix my teeth. I thought my mom meant a real rake, not the orthadontic one.

I refused to suck my thumb when I was younger. I thought what I would suck my thumbnail off and I would bleed to death.

When i was little, I sucked my right thumb. One day, it got slammed in a door. It hurt too bad to suck, so my mom told me to suck my left thumb. I tried it and made a yucky face. My mom asked me what was wrong. I told her it tasted like strawberries. She asked what the good one tasted like. I said chocolate.

I never sucked my thumb, I sucked my pointer and middle finger...Then my mom told me that smart people didn't suck their thumb but their middle and pointer fingers...that made me feel good.

I sucked on my thumb untill I was 6 years old. A uncle of mine lost three fingers. He told me he lost them from sucking his thumb. So I stopped sucking mine after that!!

I sucked my thumb until I was 9 yrs old. For most of that time, I really believed that water came out of my thumb when I sucked it. I used to argue with my mother about it, when she teased me about it.

I used to believe that every time i sucked my thumb it would loose all its blood, and in the end rot. I was 5 at the time, and dad was quite desperate for me to stop, when he told me this story. I stopped sucking my thumb at once, and tried various ways to get more blood into my thumb, as I'd been sucking it since I was a baby. I can't believe how stupid i was!
