    My Roommate

    I've sucked my thumb for most of my life. It makes me feel calm when I feel stress or threatned, and I pretty much can't get to sleep without doing it. When I was in college I never said anything to my roommate about thumbsucking. I figured it would just draw attention if I...

    Does Anyone Else Have A "blankie" Of Sorts?

    I admit, I rub blankets over my face when I suck my thumb, doesn't have to be a particular one, could be a comforter, sheet, my little travel blanket, or even just the sleeve of my sweatshirt! I don't need a blanket, it just adds to the comfort of the whole thing.

    It'S My True Happiness.

    Whenever I had a rough day, or a harsh moment, I suck on my thumb. Along with that, I always do it as a baby. I suck loud while doing it and sleep. I still do it every night, and it's not a habit, it's my way to be peaceful.

    I think I have always done it

    but usually never in front of anyone if I can help it. I try to be very careful about that. But sometimes if I am really tired or really stressed out I catch myself doing it and hope no one has seen me. At home though when I go to bed and I am tired I often do it and I wake up...

    If I can't use my binky I will suck my thumb to get to sleep. I mostly use my binky to sleep, but sometimes when I at a friends house or when they are over at my house I can't use it (they don't know about it). So I wait for them to fall asleep and then when I know they are out I...

    I have sucked my thumb and had a "blankie" since day one. My mom told me that I never took a pacifier. My mom tried every way she could to try to get me to quit. She used bandaids, tape, or bandages at night. She would put that awful nail biting nail polish on me. Anything she...

    It is a release of stress

    and daily pressure. Just in my mouth for a short time helps. During pants wetting I will suck on it too. Makes me a little boy again.

    Last year I learned that my best friend also

    sucks his thumb. He has done it since he was born, and often does it in my presence, (whilst I do the same), which is causing me to feel more comfortable about sucking MY thumb in front of some of my friends and family and his friends and family as well.

    21 Years Of Thumbsucking

    I guess I'm just going to do it forever if I'm still doing it at 21. I've heard it's more than a bad habit and it's actually a chemical addition to dopamine. Is this true?

    since I was a baby. Everytime I suck my thumb I have my baby blanket and smell it or rub it on my face.
