He's only two and already smoking 40 cigarettes a day.
Reports of the Indonesian toddler's nicotine addiction has made headlines worldwide recently. The boy, identified as Rap, was said to have picked up the dangerous habit after picking up cigarette butts off the street. When denied cigarettes, he threw tantrums until his parents eventually gave in.
He's been puffing for about a month and a half now, local media reported.
"My child is used to smoking while drinking coffee and eating cake," said his mother. "If I don't give him a cigarette, my child goes berserk." And he needs to have a cigarette before he can fall asleep, going through about two packets a day, she added.
Surprisingly, the chain-smoking child's father is a casual smoker who only lights up at work.
The boy's smoking days will soon be over as his parents said that they are going to send him to rehabilitation.
