    Life Long Thumbsucker!

    I have sucked my thumb my whole life.  I am so relaxed when I suck it and makes it so much easier to regress.  I love to spend as much time as a baby as possible and what better why to feel like a baby then to be in your diapers and sucking your thumb.  Love to...

    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.

    Never Used To...

    It's embarrassing but I've developed a habit over the 14 months or so. Sometimes I'll wake up with my thumb in my mouth. Sometimes when I'm alone or bored I'll notice my thumb drifting towards my mouth too. I don't know what's going on. I do have an ABDL side but this is just...

    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...

    I Don't Even Realize It

    I wake up in the middle of the night and find my thumb in my mouth. I unconciously suck on it when watching TV or concentrating on something for a while. I catch myself or sometimes my wife just smiles at me and tells me how cute I am.

    I Do It When I'm Bored...

    I sucked my thumb ever since I was a baby. Instead of milk, the thumb calmed me down. My parents had a lovely sleep when I was a baby. Almost 15 and still going strong. Whatever. I don't really care. As long as I wear my retainers, my teeth aren't going to slide (previously had...

    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.

    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?

    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.
