Teenager,and Still Sucking My Thumb?I am 15 years old and i cannot stop suckig my thumb. I want to stop really bad, i have gone 3 days with out doing it but i just can't seem to stop. I suck my thumb and index finger, at the same time. Basically any moment i'm alone or in front of my parents. None of my friends know, but i've been doing it since the womb. It affects me in such a negative way, my teeth hurt,the roof of my mouth hurts,my finger has a huge teeth mark on it,and everything i do by habit i make sure i don't use my left index finger,( example:as i am currently typing my index finger doesnt touch the board because i know i will suck it later.) I need to stop because it is emberassing and just pathetic. i go on google and people tell me it's fine and that they suck their thumb since like 20,but no i want to stop!!!! I also have braces,my orthodontist doesn't question anything or know i do it. But if he knew,he'd flip out. i"ve googled everything on how to stop, and i'm sick of hearing about putting nasty food on it,because come on i know im just gonna wash it off.i need a way to stop, somebody please help me! at night sometimes i wear one glove over my hand,that helps but i need a way during the day, help?
