Our son was the same but we stuck with it, despite having to get up 4-8 times a night to put the dummy back in. We contemplated taking it away completely when he was 4 months old but I just couldn't bring myself to take something away that he was so reliant upon and upset him, and like you wished I had never given it to him in the first place.
We started putting 5 dummies in his cot after that and he would just find one and pop it back in himself after a while. We eventually go rid of the dummy altogether at 18 months old when we could reason with him a little more.
