The #1 reason you shouldn't give an 18 month old a cigarette...

THESE are the first shocking pictures of smoking toddler Ardi Rizal - who throws tantrums if he can't puff 40 cigs a day.

The Sun told on Saturday how the two-year-old got hooked after dad Mohammed gave him a fag at 18 months.

Now he weighs 4st and trundles round on a toy truck blowing smoke rings - too unfit to run with other kids.

Mum Diana, 26, wept: "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."

 

No kidding ... 4st toddler Ardi Rizal is too unfit to run round with pals

Ardi will smoke only one brand and his habit costs his parents £3.78 a day in Musi Banyuasin, Indonesia.

Officials have offered to buy the family a car if he quits.

But fishmonger Mohammed, 30, said: "He looks pretty healthy to me. I don't see the problem."

Spank his little (or not so little in this case) butt, and let him feel "dizzy and sick" for a few days!

i would put him in a straight jacket and have him sit in a padded room so he wouldnt hurt himself with his violent tantrums

 I think the parents are the ones who need spankings. The last sentence completely floored me.

I dont think it the lattle boy who needs a spanking. Its the parents who need to be "spanked" for allowing an 18 month old to have a cigarette in the 1st place IMO

Why his parents enable this habit?  He's getting a lot of attention.  All they have to do is not buy them.  He's going to die before he even gets to live...my God.

I saw this posted earlier. I cant believe that people would even THINK of giving an 18 month old a cigarette in the 1st place. I dont care what country it is.
