GOsh, at one time I was really interested in the whole issue of Security Blankets ( the psychoanalysts call them Transitional Objects ) but I've rarely come across someone who still uses one at 41. Normal is a weasel word. I'd say its unusual for an adult to still use one -but its very much safer and preferable to what other people do instead, such as taking sedatives or using alcohol.
As you imply in your question, its really a matter of HOW and WHEN you use it that decides whether or not it's a problem. If you took it to job interviews, for instance, even if it calmed you, it'd probably discourage potential employers ! And maybe your husband feels uneasy about sharing the bed with a venerable object that means to much to you - he may well feel you prefer it to him ( well, its probably much less demanding ! ).
SO, keep it in proportion, and its probably preferable to many alternatives especially chemicals of various kinds.
