    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 am 11 years old and turning 12 in March.

    I still suck my thumb! I don't know why but it makes me feel safe. I also have a weird thing that makes me touch fabric. Help!

    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.

    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'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.
