2 year old child from Indonesia is filmed smoking and is reported to have 40 a day.

The video was taken by a reporter who visited the fishing village in Musi Banyuasin, in the South Sumatra province where the family live, after hearing of the child smoking.

Ardi Rizal , the 2-year-old boy who is from Sumatra, Western Indonesia, is reported to smoke up to 40 cigarettes a day.

His parents who has received plenty of stick for the shocking addiction of their son say that every time they refuse little Rizal a cigarette “he throw a tantrum and starts to scream.”

The toddler started smoking when he was only 18-month-old after his father gave him a cigarette. (Some children are given cigarettes by their parents in the Asian country as the reaction of the child is found amusing by their parents and elders.)

The most shocking thing about the video is that the child’s family members are giggling and laughing while the child puffs away a cigarette which is easily twice the size of his fingers.

The father of the boy said that he was “not worried of the child’s health” as he looks fine. His father and mother have said that their two-year-old son is addicted to cigarettes.

It is not known if the Indonesian authorities will take any legal action on the family of the child.

Indonesia is one of the leading countries in the world in both manufacturing and smoking cigarettes. The recent video of 2-year-old Rizal is not the first as just in March another Indonesian boy, aged just 4 was filmed on camera smoking, and had gone viral after being uploaded on YouTube. The video has since been removed.

Indonesia has one of the worst smoking records in the world, with a population of 250 million people; they are listed as the third most smoking country behind China (1.3 Billion population) and India (1.1 billion population).

It is reported that over a third of the country smokes, and 90% of the country’s smokers smoke a native cigarette which has twice the levels of tar and nicotine in an average cigarette around the world.

Government figures show that 25 % of Indonesia’s children aged 3-15 have tried cigarettes at some point and 3.2 % of those children are active smokers.

According to the South-East Asia Tobacco Control Alliance (SEATCA), over 90% of Indonesian children have watched advertisement of cigarettes.

Some schools and even sports teams are sponsored by tobacco companies in the country.

    very bad

  2. rudi - 09 Temmuz 2010

    have watched the video and i see alot of editing going on. i don’t speak the language so i cant comment on that…… if you “really” watch is he inhaling? still not a good thing. but hey here in the states someone is made “big” by being in self promoted affairs! is this the case…. probably not!

    tony – Not sure but i think this could be a fake video, ’cause i can’t think of anyone doing that to their own son.

    tony, i’m pretty sure this is real, because i’ve seen this on the news on television. i don’t think they’d air something that is fake.

    but yes, this is completely wrong for a child of this age to be addicted to smoking and even ALLOWED to smoke by the parents. everybody keeps mentioning things about how the parents are stupid people. maybe they are, but keep in mind that THEY DO NOT LIVE IN AMERICA. the parents are obvious not well educated, and saying that they should have “charges filed against them” wouldn’t be very effective because they live in indonesia. i’m sure things are MUCH DIFFERENT there. i am not saying that i support children smoking, in fact i find it disgusting and wrong, but many of the comments are just ridiculous.

  7. Its Me - 27 Ağustos 2010

    its not all in asean country, in Malaysia, chils that is 6 years old also cannot even try 1 cigarettes, their parents will extremely angry and punish their son if they tried to smoke, in Malaysia, 50% smokers are from Indonesia, Philipines and other country, not all people in Malaysia like to smoke, they hate it and knows the risk..

    wow

    Here’s to see what a lack of education causes to simple people. It’s unbearable that Asian governments do so little about proper education. The only thing counts is: Can I score on this project?

  10. Janet - 02 Eylül 2010

    it’s all the dad’s fault, he gave the boy his first cigarette. and i cannot believe they are laughing while he’s smoking and saying he’s in perfect health!?!?

  11. sara - 03 Eylül 2010

    mr leo and others this is really bad but it is not an opportunity to insult other societies because your “clean” and “educated” world is full of things that nobody could imagine. after all cigrattes are your invention(output of your civilization).

  12. catsrlove - 04 Eylül 2010

    This is so sad and pathetic. His parents should be punished. It makes me sick to see this innocent baby tainted with addiction. Why would someone do this to their child. This baby needs to be taken away from his parents.

  13. amir - 04 Eylül 2010

  14. amir - 04 Eylül 2010

    Funny Government

  21. iwara effeti - 29 Aralık 2010

    THIS IS NOTHING BUT WICKEDNESS & AN INABILITY TO TAKE CARE OF GOD’S PRECIOUS GIFT ENTRUSTED TO BOTH PARENTS. HAVE THEY CONSIDERED THE IMPLICATIONS OF THEIR ACTIONS VIZ – A – VIZ THE CHILD’S HEALTH & OTHER VARIABLES?

  22. Fre32Bu - 04 Ocak 2011

    As upsetting as this video is, it is NOT ACCEPTABLE to stereotype an entire country and its culture based on the behaviors of others. Be mindful of comments you make and the people you could offend.

  23. chidoo - 12 Mart 2011

    funny child

  24. kirti - 30 Mayıs 2011

  25. jay - 17 Kasım 2012

    looks like hes been putting away a few beers also judging by his girth

  26. Lua - 18 Nisan 2013

    Not only does he smoke, he is overweight- it is likely he will have heart disease along with cancer in the not too distant future!
