How do I stop my 3 year old Daughter from sucking her thumb?

My daughter is 3 fixing to turn 4 in September and I can not stop her from sucking her thumb. She does it when she is scared, tired, or just grumpy. She also will play with the tags on her clothes. She does this out of comfort but I need to teach her not to do this any more. I have tried painting her nails with the nasty taste stuff but she will pick at it until her thumb is clean. I have tried the hot sauce but she likes hot sauce so that didnt' affect her.

What else can I try?
