when i was about 8 , my neighbor died. My mum told me that she was going too wash his body and then sprinkle some water on my hand so I oculd stop. Later she returned with a yellowish liqiud and quicly dipped my finger in. From that day on I never sucked my tumb ever agin. Now I know that it was a mix of water and yellow cake coloring.

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 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.

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!

My cousin had a thumb-sucking complex which her parents found necessary to remove. The "blackened thumb" scared her, but not enough for her to stop. So at one point her father caught her in the act, grabbed her thumb and showed it to her that it was black. Scared straight. He had coated the palms of his hands in black oily substance, and when he grabbed her thumb he rubbed it on her...very clever and amusing.

In old west lore, Billy the Kid was called 'buck toothed'. I thought this was because he sucked his thumb.

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

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!

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.

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 .

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.
