This isn't really an 'addiction', you know.

You get chapped lips, and you use Vaseline to allow them to heal. Vaseline is a good thing for this, you are using it as intended and directed, with good results.

The other issue might be why you have chronic, dry lips. Often, that's caused either by exposure to really dry conditions (either hot or cold), or lip licking (evaporation!) which can be a habit that's done without awareness.

If that last bit is the case here, then you might try to be more aware of this, and just don't lick so much. That should solve the dryness issue, and therefore, your need to apply Vaseline.

PM me with the link of the post you'd like me to respond to.
