my database useroid is numeric, however the way i setup the cookies and application, a UUID useroid is created! thus i get a useroid mismatch when trying to query the database. could someone tell me how i can fix the cookie to make it numeric as well, below is the code from my application.cfm

<!--- ::      
      * set a default UUID cookie, for demo purposed this is a temp cookie.
      * But is usually a never-expiring cookie.
      *
      * this UUID is also the primary key of the user in the database.
      :: --->
<cfif not isDefined("cookie.petmarketuseroid")>
      <cfcookie name="petmarketuseroid" value="#createuuid()#">
</cfif>


<cfif not isDefined("session.user") or session.user.useroid neq cookie.petmarketuseroid>
      <cfscript>
            session.user = createObject("component", "petmarket.user");
            session.user.init(useroid=cookie.petmarketuseroid);
      </cfscript>
</cfif>

here is where the code chokes

<!--- ::      
      * populate this objects properties with a single user. creating a single user instance
      *
      * @param      useroid      the only field that is required is the users unique useroid (db primary key)
      :: --->      
      <cffunction name="init" access="public" output="true" returntype="struct" hint="retrieve the users info from the db.">
            <cfargument name="useroid" required="false" type="numeric">
            <cfscript>
                  //place all arguments into "this" scope. - only work with this scope from now on.
                  //this allows for user to call init() 2 ways.
                  //      myObject.useroid = xxxx;
                  //       myObject.init();
                  //      or
                  //      myObject.init( useroid="xxxx" );
                  for( key in arguments )
                        { this[key] = arguments[key]; }
            </cfscript>
      
            <cfquery name="getUser" datasource="#this.db#">
                  select *
                  from userinfo
                  where useroid = <cfqueryparam cfsqltype="CF_SQL_VARCHAR" value="#trim(this.useroid)#">
            </cfquery>
