When I was younger, about 4, I used to suck my thumb. One day, my dad went to the Movie rental store with me and found this one mover cover that shows a monster coming out of somebody's mouth. He suddenly said, "That's gonna happen to you if you keep sucking your thumb."
Eversince then I was to afraid to even put my thumb near my mouth (up until I was 7 though)

When i was little i used to believe that if you stuck your fingers in your mouth worms would grow in your mouth. I stopped doing that after a while because i was so scared.

When i was little my mom told me that if i didnt stop sucking my thumb then it would turn as pruney as my great-grandmother. I was about to fall aslep one night and my thumb automatically went to my mouth. The next day i called my great-grandmother and told her to straighten herself out because i wanted to suck my thumb

When I was about 6 or 7, I still sucked my thumb. Everyone in the family tried to get me to stop, but I wouldn't. I thought sucking my thumb was a good way to get my Daddy to come see me before he went to bed because he would alway remove my thumb from my mouth. Sometimes I still stick it in my mouth; I guess I still want my Daddy to come in and take it out.

when i was little my mom couldnt stop me from sucking my thumb so she told me that if i sucked my thumb my stomach would blow up like a balloon. this scared me so much i stopped. then one day i was in the park and i saw this lady with a huge stomach (not knowing she was just pregnant) and said to her see what happens when you suck your thumb. she just gave me a dirty look and walked off.

My mom was concerned about my thumb sucking and made every attempt to make me stop sucking it. In shear despiration she told me that it I continued to suck my thumb my thumb would turn black and fall off. Although I was a little frightened I continued to suck my thumb. A couple of nights later I woke up and was tramatized by my BLACK thumb!! I cried all day and prayed saying I would NEVER suck my thumb again if only I could keep my thumb. Years later I learned my black thumb, was only shoe polish!! On the up side I stopped sucking my thumb!

I used to suck my thumb all the time as a child. One day, my older sister came home from school and said that her teacher had told her that if you suck your thumb for too long, as an adult, your thumb would swell up and explode. Aahhh!

When I was little, I heard my mom telling my older brother that if he continued to suck his thumb, it would fall off, or become mis shaped, and that's why auntie didn't have one. i was terrified and never sucked my thumb!

I believed if I sucked on my thumb too long, or stayed in the bathtub for too long, I'd turn into a raisin. Thanks to my mother.

I was five and I thought that by sucking my thumb I was invisible, I never minded going outside naked sucking my thumb because no one could see me. Mum stopped me when I was four because the neighbours were freaking out

I was always told to stop sucking my thumb by other people but never my parents I even had a baby sitter put all sorts of stuff on it to get me to stop but I never did...and to this day I still suck it I'm almost 18, and my parnets still don't say anything this is actually more of a lack of displine story than thumb sucking, but I think the only way to stop is to WANT to or to have it fall off...none of my friends know I do it!....I still haven't decided if I wanna tell my husband I do it or just try to quit when I get married one day... :P
