I Still Suck My Thumb

Should be pretty obvious what this is about. If you still suck your thumb, join. :) 204 People

    I Choose This...

    I have always sucked my thumb. Growing up I had a hard life, well, hard in my eyes; and to deal with the stress I would go to my right handed man...well thumb to be exact. I first found out about sucking my thumb when I met my childhood friend. She still did it and said it was...

    Because It Helps

    i'm on the autism spectrum and i tend to get stressed easily. sucking my thumb relaxes me and doesn't hurt anyone. i really don't care anymore what people think about it. it's better than the alternatives.

    Soo... I'm 17 and I can't stop sucking my thumb.

    I thought I was totally alone until I found this group! I want to stop so badly, but despite how much I try, I continue to fail. Only my family knows, and I'm scared to death of what my friends and boyfriend would think if they found out...

    I'm not gonna lie, I do this a lot.

    Never used to as a kid but now I do, cause it's an escape from everything and it's better than cutting, which I used to do. I don't think I'm ever gonna give it up honestly, and I'm totally okay with that. To each their own.

    Don't Want To Stop

    I have sucked my thumb since I was a baby and just never stopped. I was always nervous around people and never had many friends and I think that is why I still do it. I calms me down and is one of the only things that makes me feel good. I know at 22 you should definately not be...

    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...

    It's Comforting.

    I've sucked my thumb for as long as I can remember.  It's actually the reason why I have braces.  My orthodontist said I needed to stop sucking my thumb once the braces were on, but I couldn't.  It's a comforting thing with me.  I guess it's my mother's...

    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.
