    i knew a girl who did that but went all out with it; baby clothes, diapers, dummies, etc etc. She said it was a coping mechanism for traumatic stuff that happened to her; it’s called “age regression”
    Maybe that’s what you’re doing without knowing about it? Look into it

    I know a few people who still stuck their thumb as like a comfort thing, but I do think sucking a dummy is a bit odd. That being said, it's a free country and you're not hurting anyone, so go for it.

    This was a trend among secondary school kids in the 90s. So more outdated than anything!

    I actually HAVE to use a pacifier. I'm on a CPAP machine and use nasal pillows but, after having too much air leakage, it was suggested I try the pacifier after not being happy with the chinstrap which wasn't working well anyway. It took awhile to find the right type of pacifier as the "orthodontic" ones were too narrow. I finally found one by Cuddulz called "Blue" which is more "old fashioned" looking and it worked flawlessly.

    As for teeth, yes, my uppers have moved forward about 2 millimeters after 6 months but, for me, a good night's sleep is well worth it and the movement has made it slightly more comfortable, even though it was so before. It can be a bit addicting though because, now, I find it hard to go to sleep without it and don't even try not using it as a result. It now stays in my mouth the whole night, easily. It totally stops any air leakage and fits very well. If my uppers continue to move forward I expect that to be a mere accommodation and fully accept it for its benefits.

    I don't think it would do any harm apart from mess up the alignment of you're teeth. You may get bullied though if in public. Maybe chew gum instead?
