This is a question Addicted

Cigarettes, gambling, porn and booze. What's your addiction? How low have you sunk and how have you tried to beat it?

Thanks to big-girl's-blouse for the suggestion

It Sucks
Sometime between when I was the age of nought and one, my mother got so sick of me crying she stuck my thumb in my mouth.

From that moment there was no turning back, and in my thirties I still suck my thumb privately.

I have never told a soul and no one has ever seen me, not even girlfriends past or present. I simply have to catch time alone to do it, or position myself out of people's view when watchina movie or whatever. But the thought of doing it absent-mindedly in public or at work is mortifying.

To be honest, I've never really tried to stop. It's always there see so what's the point?

I'm surprised that no one else has coughed up to this one. Or is it really just me?

My 39 year old sister still sucks her thumb.
Plus it's discernably thinner than her other thumb because of all the sucking.

Do you realise...
... that you'll be doing it when you're asleep?

What if the person you're with wakes up and notices?

And what if one night when not sleeping alone you dream you're sucking your thumb
and you wake up and it's not your thumb? Not a thumb at all?

i had to stop sucking my fingers when I had braces at 17, otherwise I;d still be doing it at 32. I do sucks my thumb when I'm upset sometimes, though

Don't worry
I've known a few people do this into adult-hood, not least the current Mrs G - still sucking away at 45! And yes...

My sister sucked her thumb
until age 33. She gave it up when she decided to have her teeth straightened (which had been displaced by her thumb always being in her mouth).

Two years on, she now has nice straight teeth and has kicked the habit.
