I wish i could help... I still do it, I am 52 years old.... I don't think it is so bad.. helps me cope with life sometimes. :-) Thank you VERY MUCH for sharing...

I was a thumb sucker as well. I was a teenager when i quit.<br />

It did mess up my front teeth.

if u can learn to use a binky it wont mess up ur teeth and u can still have the sucky thing going for u. it took me a long time to learn us use mine when im asleep but its really cool when ur doing stuff - like typing online...

Wearing mittens or gloves to bed will help stop unconscious sucking of your thumb.

Well what ive heard is...im not saying its true but i kinda beleive its that...people suck their thumbs because when they were babies there mom didnt breast-fed them the right amount...just dont think of it i guess id chew come or eat candy X3
