Toddler Smokes 2 Packs a Day

Written by Maura

..I’m serious, welcome to Indonesia.

Now I’m all about being open to other cultures, not everyone thinks or acts the same. Norms are different everywhere. But COME ON! A toddler chain smoker??


A video has emerged of Ardi Rizal, an Indonesian 2 year old toddler, chillin smoking some cigs. He started smoking when he was 18 months old and is now up to about 40 cigarettes per day, FYI 20 cigarettes are in a standard pack, which means this kid is rocking a 2 pack a day habit.  According to Britain’s Sun newspaper his mother claims “He’s totally addicted,” she said. “If he doesn’t get his cigarettes, he gets angry and screams and batters his head against the wall. He tells me he feels dizzy and sick.” Not only is he a smoker at 2, he is also overweight, so much so that he can’t run and play with the other kids..but his dad isn’t worried, “I’m not worried about his health and— he looks healthy,” proud papa told reporters.

WTF, people?
