    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...

    Yes... Im 16 And Still A Thumb Sucker

    I'm not sure if I sucked my thumb when i was younger or not, I cant remember. It started probably about 13 when things went down hill in my life. It was like that for a couple years and its just something i did to comfort myself and it helped with the stress. Things are much...

    I've sucked my thumb

    for as long as I can remember and my whole family makes fun of me for it. I'm embarrassed by it but how do I get rid of a habit that calms me down? Even now that I'm 20, my uncle would make fun of me for it. When I was little I liked to twirl my hair and suck my thumb and now...

    I Can't Sleep Without It

    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 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.

    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?

    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...

    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.

    Don't Want To Stop

    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...
