Hi. I’m Yumblie. And I’m addicted to chapstick.
For years now I’ve never left the house without a stick in my pocket. It was applied at least once a day, sometimes after every meal. I always wondered why my lips would be continuously chapped. I’ve grown to realize that it’s the chapstick itself that is hurting me, not helping me. Sure, it makes me feel good for a moment, but it only lasts for so long. It gives me a short burst of pleasure and relief, one that grows shorter with each application. It’s tearing my family apart; it’s ruined my personal relationships and career. I think the other day I killed a hobo and stole his chapstick. I was losing my mind. I lost control. The other day I decided enough is enough. I’m dry from now on.
It’s been 3 days now, without using chapstick. Man is this irritating. But I can do it. Right? Right??
