I Still Suck My Thumb

Should be pretty obvious what this is about. If you still suck your thumb, join. :) 301 People

    I'm 67 and still suck my thumb.

    I've done it since I was born. I was adopted; I don't know if not being nursed contributed to the habit. For me it is a self soothing behaviour and also a little erotic at times. I have often wondered if there are men who have this habit?

    I'm over here sucking my thumbing and rubbing my ear. My original means and most comforting form of self soothing.

    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.

    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.

    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...

    I suck my thumb because it calms me down.

    I never used to when I was young but now I always suck my thumb. I used to self harm but found that sucking my thumb was much more calming and satisfying (and safer).
