chapstick addiction

Many discussed the notion of Chapstick addiction. I think the routine use of the product does cause a dependency. I am aware of friends who developed similar dependency on nasal sprays.

I'd like to encourage people to research the making of one's own lip balm (much cheaper) with beeswax. Also, try using honey applied topically to the lips (on the outer edges so you are not tempted to lick them. It works very well. Drink enough water and hopefully one ought to be able to wean off the Chapstick.
