Consider this code, in page1.php:

         setcookie("someWord","I am a cookie");

...and this code, in page2.php:

         print ("someWord says: $someWord");
         $someWord = "I am a variable";
         print ("< a href=\"page2.php?someWord=$someWord\" >Click here< /a >");

(In the actual code, the value of $someWord is passed via POST through a 
form, but the principle is the same.)

The first time I load page2.php, the output should be:

         someWord says: I am a cookie

Which, of course, works perfectly.

But each subsequent time I load page2.php, I want the output to be:

         someWord says: I am a variable

and then set the value of the cookie "someWord" to "I am a variable".

But that's not what happens.  Everytime I load page2.php, someWord tells me 
that it is a cookie.

How do I get the value of the variable to override the value of the cookie?
