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 gran once told me that if I didn't stop sucking my fingers, they would get smaller and smaller like a lollipop.

Being inquisitive, I just sucked them more to see if she was right.

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 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!!!

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

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. :)

My mom told me that your thumb would turn green and fall off in your sleep if you sucked your thumb too much. I believed this until I was 10.
