In first grade, my friend Jonathan and I had a bad habit of sucking our thumbs all the time. Everyone started copying us to the point were almost everyone in first grade(and some kindergardeners) sucked their thumb all day long.

In order to stop everyone from sucking their thumb my teacher(A Nun) told us that if we continued to suck our thumbs, that they would fill with water and either eventually fall off or explode!!! I imagined life without a thumb and having to explain to my mom that my thumb exploded because I wouldn't stop sucking it. It creeped me out.

I stopped immediantly, but Jonathan sucked his thumb until 3rd grade...go figure...

I had this friend when I was younger, and she told me if you sucked your thumb for long enough it would turn to toffee. She was a lot older than me, so naturally I believed her. Needless to say I was v disappointed when it didn't work......

When I was 7-8, I still sucked my thumb. Well, not infront of my friends. My parents tried to find excuses for me to stop, until my father came up with, "If you keep sucking your thumb, all the skin will come off and your bones will be left!" That did the trick.

I used to suck my thumb(until about 9). One day my mom said that in the middle of the night she would put tape on, then put hot peepers stuck onto the tape. I believed her.

I was so scared I tried my hardest to stop, but I couldn't!

When I was young, I used to suck my thumb all the time and my Mom couldn't seem to get me to stop. Then one day at the dentist's office, he said to her that if I didn't stop sucking my thumb, it'd push my teeth out. He meant that it would make my teeth crooked, but I thought that I'd really push them out of my mouth! That scared the habit out of me.

Growing up my younger sister sucked her thumb until she was almost 12 (I kid you not) I used to think that if she kept sucking it, it would be sucked away into nothingness, like a lolipop.

when i was 2 or 3 there was this helper at my daycare. she was my favorite helper so i believed everything she said. well i used to suck my thumb and she said one of her sister's friends sucked their thumb and their thumb turned hot pink and their teeth stuck out like a walrus. well, being a little girl, i didn't care about the hot pink thumb part. (it was my favorite color back then!) i didn't know what a walrus was so i asked her. she showed me a picture and i thought that was what i would turn into! i was afraid that i would become all gray and wrinkly and get walrus teeth and walrus whiskers. i never sucked my thumb again!

My cousin used to be addicted to sucking his thumb when he was little. We thought his thumb would get really big if he kept on with this habit. Shoot, he didn't give a crap. He kept on until he was just turning 6, but still did it in his sleep. I laughed at him too.

Since I had a older brother who was 6 years older then me and had already gorwn out of this habit, I didnt even know kids did this. I assumed you did it for the first week after birth then just stopped. Well, when i went to my first sleep-over, there was a girl there who was older then me, (i think she was 6) and she sucked her thumb. I thought she she did it, it must be cool. I went home and sucked my thumb. My mom told me that it was immature and babyish so i was to stop. I did, but i didn't believe her until years later.

My mom told me that if I continued to suck my thumb, my front teeth would grow like a rabbit's. I stopped, but then accused her of lying when my front teeth grew on.

I sucked my thumb when I was younger, and our familie's friend had lost his thumb in a farming accident. But everytime we saw him, he would show my sister and I the stub he had for a thumb and try to scare us to stop sucking our thumb...it obviously didn't work as I sucked my thumb until I was almost 21 years old! Nice try though...

I've sucked my thumb for my entire life, and still do now. When I was like 7 or 8, an older friend who was maybe fifteen told me that she sucked her thumb a lot and it shrunk. She showed me too, but later on, (still sucking) i realized that it is very easy to just make your thumb go higher or lower than the other one when you compare them side by side. (ps im 14 have a nose ring and still suck my thumb!!!)

When i sucked my thumb when i was little, my Grandmother always used to ask me what it tasted like. I always told her that it tasted like grapes and strawberries. I could just imagine someone mixing up grapes and strawberries in a bowl and then spreading it on my thumb at night!!!
