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 cigarette at 18 months.

Now he weighs 4 stone [56 pounds] 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."

Ardi will smoke only one brand and his habit costs his parents £3.78 [$5.44] 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."

ETA: I found this video!! OMG!!



I wonder if this is even believable! What are your thoughts?

Does this qualify for the dumb parenting list?

Wow, this is so sad!  What a terrible father to even think to give his son a cigarette!  If I were his mother I wouldn't give in so easily to his tantrums....Kids will throw tantrums if they don't get their way, but you don't have to give in!

Thats crazy!  He must of gained the weight because he cant run and keep up with the other kids due to the reason he cant breathe.  They'd better do something about him or else start planning his funeral.
