i am 15 and just gave up sucking my thumb (haven't done it for about 2 weeks now) and the ownly reason i stopped was because i was told that if i didn't that in a few years my teeth would end up sticking right out of my mouth!

WHEN I WAS A LITTLE BOY I USED TO BELIEVE THAT IF I DIDN'T SUCK MY THUMB THAT MY FAT SMELLY SISTER WOULD BITE IT OFF. THIS SOUNDS REALLY STUPID BUT I SUCKED MY THUMB UNTIL I WAS IN THE 10TH GRADE.

When I was little I sucked my thumb until I went to the dentist and he told me that if I didn't stop, I'd have front teeth like Bugs Bunny. I believed him, and stopped sucking my thumb.

I sucked my thumb until I was eleven years old. I only stopped because my father threatened to leave my family for another woman halfway around the world. i thought that if i had finally stopped, that he wouldn't go because both parents would become proud of me for kicking the habit. i also stopped because i learned that, when mixed with fluoride, sucking ur thumb does a number on your teeth. and trust me, it's not pretty.

I never sucked my thumb, I sucked my pointer and middle finger...Then my mom told me that smart people didn't suck their thumb but their middle and pointer fingers...that made me feel good.

although (and perhaps because) i was never a thumb sucker, I believed that if I sucked hard enough, I could get water to come out of my thumb. in reality, of course, this water was my own saliva.

When I was 6, my Mom told me that if i sucked my thumb eventually i would suck the whole thing off. I am still hesitant to suck my thumb but I still do it. (I'm 19)

i though that if u suck your thumb you color of your skin will go away. I also though it would shirnk so i always mesured it everyday but still I didnt care , my dad always told me that if I kept sucking it my thumb would come off,i was kinda scared but then i just didnt care and today i still suck my thumb and is very amusing and kinda tasty even though it doesnt have a "special taste" that i can tell you.

that sucking your thumb would cause buck teeth. when i was little my mom tried all sorts of things to get me to stop. one night she put hot pepper juice on it. i rubbed my eyes and got the juice in it. she had to get up and wash out my eyes. i did not stop. i still occasionally suck my thumb when i go to bed and i'm 24

i used to think if you sucked your thumb enough you'd suck off your thumb.

As a child I used to suck my thumb, that was until my nan told me she knew a little girl who used to suck her thumb as a child and she sucked it so much it went down to the bone and she was left with a bone sticking out of her hand!

I always used to suck my left thumb!! until I was quite old I am ashamed to say! My Mum persuaded me to give up this habit by telling me if I kept sucking my thumb it would end up falling off!
