Ardi Rizal, you have a problem. Well, really, your parents do.

The two-year-old boy from Indonesia has a cigarette habit, one to the tune of 40 cigarettes a day. “‘He cries and throws tantrums when we don’t let him smoke. He’s addicted,” says father Mohammad to the Daily Mail. Mohammad allowed Ardi to start smoking at just 18 months.
