a bit balmy

If you’ve got a problem (or something that even slightly resembles a problem), there’s a support group for you, somewhere out there.

There’s even Lip Balm Anonymous, whose mission is “to stay free from lip balm and to help others achieve the same freedom.”

A sampling from their self-evaluation:

  • Has the use of lip balm interfered with your job?
  • Is your lip balm use causing conflict with your spouse or family?
  • Do you feel depressed, guilty, or remorseful after you use lip balm?
  • Do you ever wish that you had never taken that first application or hit of lip balm?
  • Do you have an obsession to get lip balm when you don’t have it?
  • Do you experience an anticipation high just knowing you are about to use lip balm?
  • Are you absorbed with the thought of getting coated even while interacting with a friend or loved one?
  • Have you begun to use lip balm while alone?
  • Do your lips, nose, or other areas hurt when you avoid Lip Balm?
  • Do you use larger doses of lip balm to get the same protection you once experienced?

The site started out as am honest joke, but has turned out to be a useful resource to true, real-life Bonne Bell addicts.
