And you thought you had a bad smoking habit.
Ardi Rizal isn't even out of diapers, but he already smokes around 40 cigarettes every day.
The 2-year-old Sumatran boy was given his first cigarette at 18 months by his 30-year-old father, Mohammed. Now, he throws tantrums if he's denied his two-pack-a-day habit, according to his family.
"He's totally addicted," said Ardi's 26-year-old mother, Diana. "If he doesn't get cigarettes, he gets angry and screams and batters his head against the wall. He tells me he feels dizzy and sick."
The overweight tot uses a toy truck to get around instead of being active with other children, according to the report.
The boy's disturbing habit hasn't escaped public notice in Sumatra. Concerned officials offered to buy the family a car if Ardi quits.
Mohammed Rizal seemed unconcerned.
"He looks pretty healthy to me. I don't see the problem," he said.

Toddler gets drunk on gin and iced tea
Raymond Jackson is charged with first-degree criminal abuse, a felony punishable by five years to 10 years in prison. He has been held at the Kenton County jail in lieu of a $10,000 cash bond since his arrest on Saturday.
A preliminary hearing in the case is set for June 1 in Kenton District Court. A public defender was appointed for Jackson.
Jackson allowed, and encouraged, the 2-year-old to drink a cocktail of gin and iced tea, according to court records. The child’s blood-alcohol lever was 0.250, more than three times the minimum for a driver to be presumed impaired under Kentucky law.
Jackson was home in an apartment on Woodhill Court Saturday taking care of his 6-month-old son and stepdaughter when the girl drank the alcohol, according to court records. Investigators said Jackson was also drinking.
Authorities were alerted after Jackson and his wife, Amanda Jackson, showed up at St. Elizabeth Edgewood hospital on Saturday with the unresponsive girl. The stepdaughter was rushed to Children’s Hospital Medical Center in Cincinnati and treated for alcohol poisoning. Authorities did not release her condition on Monday.
Amanda Jackson was granted an emergency custody of the children on Monday, according to court records.
A restraining order has also been issued. Jackson is to have no contact with his wife or the children in the event he posts bail.
Amanda Jackson claimed in petitions to get the retraining order and custody of the children that the 2-year-old also had fractured ribs and bruising on the head.
