When my sister was little, she used to suck her thumb. My mom and dad tried to get her out of the habit, so my older sister and I figured we'd help... and give her nightmares.
We told her a story about a man who sucked his thumb and about how he was homeless because nobody liked him for it. We told of how one day, he had to go to the hospital beacuse his thumb started bleeding and how it fell off. Everday, we would add on to the story of this man's thumb. To this day, she won't even look at her thumb.

I used to believe that if you suck your thumb too much, it would fall off the next day. My mom told me that to prevent me from sucking my thumb and I never sucked my thumb again. I'm 20 and am still afraid to suck my thumb. I will tell my future kids that if they don't stop sucking their thumb

I had a really bad habit of sucking my thumb, and I sucked it until I was 9 years old. (the only reason I stopped was because of an expander in my mouth. There just wasn't room for my thumb anymore!) My grandpa used to tell me all the time that if I kept sucking my thumb, I would grow a monkey's tale!! It just made me suck it more

When me and my brother were really we would suck our thumbs(like every little kid does when there lil). Then 1 day my mom told us if we suck on our thumb for along time our thumb would grow out of our butt and it would become a tail.

If you suck your thumb it would eventually go black, shrivel up and fall off.

Well when i was little i sucked my thumb until i was about four then i stopped. Then i started in kindergarten again because my best friend (stll!) did. Then my sister said that your thumb wouldn't grow anymore and would shrink! I stopped sucking my thumb and told my mom, and she told me she sucked her thumb until she was 11!

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?

I used to think if you sucked on your thumb, it would grow bigger and bigger because it absorbed all your saliva. My mother told me this, and it scared me enough that I never did it.

I used to think your thumb would start to rot at night everytime I sucked my thumb each day, and then my thumb would fall off and I'll never grow back a new one

I thought thumb sucking was illegal and you could get arrested if you didn't stop sucking it. So i stopped sucking my thumb so i wouldn't get arrested.

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.
