A video of a two-year-old boy smoking cigarettes as his parents watched him has been circulating online recently
The toddler, who goes by the name Rapi Ananda Pamungkas or Rap, is from Sukabumi, Indonesia.
The toddler, who has been addicted to smoking cigarettes for a month and half now, can often smoke up to two packs a day - 40 cigarettes
His mother, Maryati, told local news site SukabumiUpdate on 13 August, that the boy began smoking after picking up discarded cigarette butts that were lying on the road.
"Two packs of cigarettes can be smoked," said his 35-year-old mother, adding that her toddler would often smoke while drinking coffee or eating cake.
Maryati said that Rap would often throw tantrums if she and her husband did not give in to his nicotine cravings
Initially, Maryati and her husband, Misbahudin found it rather amusing, however, the humour died down when the boy would go berserk and cry all day if he was denied a cigarette.
His mom added that her son often needed a puff before going to bed at night.
Rap's father, who is a smoker himself, seemed to not know why his child picked up the habit
"I cannot say no to him when he asks for a cigarette. I don't even smoke that often. I only smoke at work. When my son smokes he likes to have a cup of mochaccino," said 40-year-old Misbahudin, according to the news report.
Rap's parents mentioned that they plan to take their toddler to the doctor to help cure his addiction
"He wants to be treated," his father admitted.
