Pity the Non Smoking wine-o's who enjoys the numbing properties of wine daily to avoid their painful reality that is life. Wineo's usually start drinking with friends then drink by themselves in their bedrooms. They start with half bottles a day then move on to full bottles a day, eventually buying boxs of wine in bulk to supply their needs.

Smoking smokers who enjoy the coughing and smelly properties of tobacco do so to avoid their painful reality of life. They smoke by themselves in their bedrooms, garage or attic, or hang around with other smokers. Starting with one or two cigarettes a day they move on to half-a-pack, a full pack, two packs and even three packs. Eventually packs of cigarettes aren't enough so the next big leap is a carton, then two cartons of cigarettes in bulk, to supply their needs.
