    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 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...

    I am 28 years old and still suck my thumb.

    I have been sucking my thumb since I was in 7th grade. I'm not sure why I started in middle school when most kids quit before kindergarten. I don't care who knows. I do it on the bus all the time. I have never done it in front of my family for some reason I just don't want to...

    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).

    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...

    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 don't suck my thumb.

    . Never have. However I'm dating someone who does and It REALLY freaks me out. Every other moment we are together I see her as a strong, beautiful woman. However when I see her do this I cannot help but cringe. I feel like I'm no longer dating this woman but some sort of woman...

    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...

    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.

    I do it whenever I'm sleeping

    or I'm really stressed out, but otherwise I don't do it... And I noticed that ever since I've stopped my nail biting habit, it's slowly fading away from me... I stopped my nail biting a few months ago, and it seems like I only suck my thumb when I'm sleeping deeply, at least...

    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?

    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.
