A toddler from Indonesia has already got a 40-a-day habit after his father introduced him to smoking when he was just 18 months old.
Two year old Ardi Rizal is totally addicted to nicotine, if he doesn’t get his favourite brand of smokes he loses his temper and bangs his head against the wall until he’s allowed to light up. Ardi’s 26 year old mother Diana has been trying to get her son to quit, but says she hasn’t been able to.
The little boy is a proper little fatty, already weighing in at four stone and just two years old. Ardi just trundles along on a toy truck chain smoking as he is too unfit to run around playing with the other children in his neighbourhood.
Mohammed Rizal, the child’s father a 30 year old fishmonger gave him his first cigarette when he was just 18 months old, and is totally unrepentant.
“He looks pretty healthy to me. I don’t see the problem” Mohammed said.
