Okay, I am too embarrassed to post without hiding behind the anonymous button on this one. I really thought I was the only one and have been wanted to post this question for awhile now. I saw a post to another question that could've been put up by me. I am a 31yrold thumbsucker. When my DS was born I quit, without even trying, for 8 months. It's just like I was too busy to do it, lol. I don't know why but I started back but not nearly as bad as before. I used to suck my thumb to sleep every night and just in general to relax. I confided this to my first husband and he thought it was cute and even encouraged it which naturally caused me to do it more because I no longer had to hide it, BUT we lived together for about 10 years before he ever knew. Now I'm curious, how common is this? Will everyone post anon as I have, or are there those of you that are not ashamed? I saw one in the other post.....This is my deep dark secret.

I did until I was about 17 or 18. My daughter never did - thank God! Horrible habit. However, I lost someone very, very close to me last year. Since then, I have had to fight the urge on several occasions to suck my thumb. Almost gave in a couple of times, but just couldn't put it in my mouth. I teach 2nd grade, so I know about germs, etc. lol - just the thought of that was enough to help me resist!
