A 2-year-old toddler in Indonesia is making headlines now that video’s surfaced showing him apparently addicted to cigarettes and smoking as many as 40 a day.
Baby Ari Rizal was first given a cigarette by his father when he was 18 months.
His mother Mum Diana tells The Sun that since then he’s become completely addicted and lashes out when he doesn’t get his cigarettes.
“He’s totally addicted. If he doesn’t get cigarettes, he gets angry and screams and batters his head against the wall. He tells me he feels dizzy and sick.”
The Sun reports that officials have offered to buy the family a car if they stop giving the child cigarettes but his father Muhammad turned down their offer saying,
“He looks pretty healthy to me. I don’t see the problem.”
