Can you believe that an only 2 year-old kid has been smoking?
When I read the article via the Internet, I was very shocked.

According to the article, his name is Ardi Rizal, 2 years old and from Indonesia. He smokes 40 cigarettes every day. When he was one and a half years old, his dad has started to give him cigarettes with his curiosity.
His mom is anxious about his health, but his dad has ignored about it. He is addictied to nicotine right now, so if he can't smoke, he will be panicked.

In Indonesia, 25 percent children have experiences to smoke when they are three to fifteen years old. And 3.2 percent is heavy smoker.

I discovered the video clip that Ardi Rizal is smoking.

What do you think about that?
I guess in Indonesia smoking is a kind of their tradition, but I can't understand why their parents give their children cigarettes.
I really hope children who has smoking habit won't be gotten any damage to their health.
