Adults Sucking Thumb – Sucking thumb, REALLY?

Yeah, I know that it sounds a bit strange but there are many who have the habit of sucking thumb. Let me add, they’re not babies but they’re adults living in their 20’s. I know you’re thinking “Why are they doing it?” or “Why can’t they just stop doing it?” All your questions will be answered IF you read the below-mentioned points.

Firstly, let me add, that there are many who have this habit. You know; sucking thumb when you’re an adult is considered to be uncool. Based on the research; many thumb suckers tried their best to stop it but FAILED badly. No matter how much they try to stop it, the habit just comes back like a magic.

If you think from their perspective then you will understand their problem.

Adults Sucking Thumb: Thanks to Reddit, many thumb suckers shared the reason they do it even though it is considered to be a bad habit.

  1. I’m a 26-year-old married woman, and I suck my thumb and I love it. I never want to stop. It gives me great comfort, is relaxing and I’m blessed with an overbite and so it’s never affected my teeth.
  2. I’m 22 and I still suck my index and middle finger. I’ve tried everything to stop (hot sauce, bleach, and my parent/friends slapping my hands). It’s comforting so I keep doing it.
  3. So, I am 21 f and also still suck my thumb!!! I pretty much have to do it to fall asleep, and if I do go to sleep without sucking my thumb, I wake up with my thumb in my mouth.
  4. So yes, I suck my thumb and I am 20 years old. I get a feeling of comfort when I suck my thumb. And when I can’t suck my thumb, when I have the chance to a feeling of anxiety washes over me. I can’t fall asleep unless I am sucking my thumb.
  5. Well, I’m 25 and I suck my thumb, always have done. I find it very comforting and it helps me to relax.
  6. Yeah I know it’s a bad habit but I can’t break the habit easily. I suck my thumb for a long time when I’m stressed.
  7. I know it’s embarrassing but I cannot stop doing it. How can I? It’s so comforting.
  8. Here I am though. 23 years old, going on 24… Still, suck my thumb while I rub fabric between my fingers or against my cheek. The only time I do it though is before I go to bed. I know it sounds crazy. It’s basically part of my sleep regiment though. If I don’t do it, it takes me MUCH longer to fall asleep. It already takes me long enough. I did for a while (about the month or so) ignore my habit before going to bed every night. However, whenever I awoke in the middle of the night, I’d wake up with it in my mouth. It’s like my brain & body are so used to the habit that it automatically happens even when I’m not in control. On one hand, it’s VERY strange to me and I hate it, but yet on the other, it’s been a part of my every night routine for my entire life and really does relax me.
