Indonesian Boy Smokes 40 Cigarettes A Day - Amazing Kids

World Records Paavan S - Targetseo.com - SEO India | Saturday, May 29, 2010 | , , | 0 comments »

 

A video showing a toddler enjoying a cigarette is causing shockwaves around the world. Perhaps even more shocking is that the boy is apparently already an addicted smoker. The child, 2-year-old Ardi Rizal, who lives in Indonesia, smokes two packs a day, according to his parents.

They said he had his first puff at 18-months and took to it like a fish to water. Six months later, the toddler is said to smoke 40 cigarettes a day.

His mother said the boy is completely addicted, and becomes angry if he doesn't get his smoke break – going as far as screaming and bashing his head against the wall. He says he feels dizzy and sick when he's not smoking. Statistics show his habit is part of a disturbing trend. A quarter of all Indonesian children ages 3 to 15 have reportedly tried cigarettes.
