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.

  1. 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.

  10. 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.
