A 2 year old who smokes 40 cigarettes a day!

Yes, you read it right…Ardi, a 2 year old child from the village of Musi Banyuasin in Indonesia, smokes  40 cigarettes a day. The person who handed him his first cigarette when he was just 18 months old was his father, a local fisherman.

Ardi smokes only one brand of cigarettes, which costs his parents $5.50 (Rs 250 approx) every day. His mother cries while claiming her son is absolutely addicted and if he does not get his cigarettes, he becomes angry and screams while beating his head on the wall. He tells his mother he becomes sick and dizzy without them. Ari’s health has been ruined by his habit  and his weight has now moved to 25 kg. The situation is so bad that Ardi struggles to even move, leave alone  running and playing with other children of his age.

The biggest problem is that despite of his child’s health and the costs involved, Ardi’s father seems fine, he said that his child seems pretty healthy and does not see a problem with it. Now that is shockingly sad!

Check out the video and see it for yourself how bad the situation is…
