    I Carry At Least 2 Chapsticks Everywhere I Go....

    In every bag I own, every jacket I use on the regular, you will find at least 2 or 3 chapsticks/lip glosses/lip balm swirling around. I never really noticed how much I used them until one day I couldn't find a chapstick on me and started to freak out and had to stop on my way to...

    When I saw the photo of all those chapsticks, color-coded in perfect rows, I immediately reached for a tube and applied my Smackers Wild Berry.

    I started when I was about 12 and I have not stopped ever since. When I was twelve my lips would get chapped a lot. I used chapstick everyday then after a while I became addicted. I had to put on chapstick if not then I didn't feel like myself. Sooner or later I was putting on...

    Never Leave Home Without It!

    I hear you.  Chapstick is a seasonal must - when it's cold and dry.  I'm a lip gloss freak too.  My kids don't want to see me cry so they know to assure me that they won't hesitate to use the chapstick I've provided in every pocket.  I can't bear to see...

    Always On Me

    I always have my chapstick on me. Can't go anywhere without it.  I always get the cherry flavour.  I can't stand that lip glass stuff, never use it. Chapstick all the way!

    I'm not girly but I am OBSESSED with chapstick. I play a lot of different Woodwind insterments and my lips are constantly getting chapped. I am currently liking Burt's Bee's. I tried EOS but it broke out my lips :( Burts Bee's in Pomegrante is helping me :)

    It's Ridiculous!

    It's not that I'm addicted, its that I've become dependent on it! I need it 24/7, if I leave the house without it, my lips practically die! I'm constantly licking them so they get dried out, and I get this raw red line above my upper lip and below my bottom lip. So im...

    For people who are not addicted - you will not understand, but to my fellow junkies, I almost had a meltdown!  I was at my relatives, no car, no make up bag/purse - no CHAPSTICK!!!!  Wow - I really need to have more secret stashes ....

    I Can'T Finish A Whole Thing Of Chapstick

    I am addicted to chapstick. I keep buying them, and I never finish them. Some times I lose them, wash them accidentally, forget them in another purse, so then I have to get another one. I also keep switching brands. I use Burt Bees, The Body Shop, and Badger Balm. One of my goals...

    Am I The Only Guy In This Group?

    As a kid I would lick my lips to the point of bleeding / blistering. The doctor recommended ChapStick. 35 years later I'm still hooked. Only one tube, but it is always with me. Am I the only guy in this group?

    I Wonder If They Make a Coffee Flavored Chapstick??

    OK - so I love chapstick and coffee ... so, why not a coffee flavored chapstick??  There have been worse things -- Tomato flavored jello (aspic)  Mac and cheese and ketchup (disgusting)  Coffee and sugar (gross)

    Bert's Bees Lip Balm. Best stuff ever. AND if you have a spot that is chaffed or rubbed almost raw you can slather it in the stuff and make it feel so much better. Not to mention that it helps heal it up without the roughened skin you sometimes get after friction burns. Even...

    Right now I use Qtica Intense Lip Repair Balm.

    Let me tell you, it is thick and lasts for hours. I love it. Most other chapsticks just make my lips peel, but this stuff moisturizes. I only need to use a little and one tube can last for months. It's great. Thank you Qtica.

    As all of you must have done, at one time or another, was to break the chapstick cycle. For people that don't get this, I know that this seems weird, but your lips do produce their own moisture, and when you supplement the moisture with chapstick, your lips do not continue...
