Ok, get ready to call the law because this story is so wrong on so many levels.
Two year-old Ardi Rizal has an unfortunate addiction and it’s one that some adults take years to overcome. International news reports from Indonesia reveal today that Rizal has developed a rather severe smoking habit and actually smokes two packs a day, according to his parents. The toddler took his first puff at 18-months and took to it like a fish to water.
Just six months later, Rizal is said to smoke 40 cigarettes a day. His mother claims Rizal is known for kicking, screaming and banging his head against the wall whenever she tries to prevent him from having his cigarette fix multiple times a day. The father says he’s fully aware, too, but doesn’t think anything is wrong with his son’s habit.
The news of this toddler’s addiction is outrageous. What are the parents thinking? Who’s seriously even buying the kid cigarettes all day everyday like that? I’m just not even sure what to think or say at this point so I’ll let you all chime in – especially the parents. Let’s hear it.
