Is it possible to become addicted to Chapstick?

ALBANY, NY (NEWS10) – Today’s 98.3 TRY social dilemma came from Angela, and it’s about lip balm. Here is his email:

Hi Jaime. I have a question for your daily dilemma. Can you become addicted to chapstick? Here’s why I ask. I recently moved to Albany from South Carolina. I have never used so much lip balm at home. A friend told me that cold New York winters mean you’ll need lip balm every day! But another friend told me that I should stop using so much because it’s bad for your lips. But even when I’m indoors for a day or two, I find I still need it. I have one in my car, several in my house, one at my desk at work and, of course, one in my purse. And I became a little obsessed with it. I have to make sure I have it with me. I tried to stop using it, but I still feel like I need it. Am I addicted, or is it just the way of life in New York State? And is there anything else you can do for your lips other than lipstick? Thank you I like

I completely identify with Angela’s email. I too have lip balm everywhere. I use something called Softlips, but there are a million different products for your lips. I use it all the time. Winter, summer, spring and autumn. Is it an addiction? I have no idea, but I know I need it.

Are you like Angela, and me for that matter? Where can you go winter without lip balm? Let’s help Angela out and let me know about the TRY the Facebook page.
