A two-year-old from Indonesia is turning to his toys after picking up a 40-per-day smoking habit.
Tons of adults know the struggle of quitting smoking… but not many toddlers. Two-year-old Rapi Ananda Pamungkas from Indonesia is trying to quit after picking up a nasty two-pack-a-day habit.
His mother, Maryati, admits she had a hand in his smoking habit, which started when he began picking up cigarette butts off the street. “It was getting to a point where he was crying, begging for cigarettes, otherwise he would rampage,” she explains, adding that she eventually started buying him two packs a day so he would stop throwing tantrums. Once she saw him start to suffer some troubling symptoms, however, she says it was clearly time for him to quit. Ya think?
So, now he’s cutting down, but he still sneaks a puff when he can. He is a kid, after all, breaking the new rules when his mom isn’t looking. And his quitting method? Playing with toys. “Rapi has stopped smoking now and plays more with his toys,” his mother claims. “I am very happy.”
