A TODDLER shocked the world when the image of him smoking a cigarette was completely transformed after eliminating his 40-a-day habit.
Ardi Rizal, from Sumatra, Indonesia, was only two years old when the boy was happily witnessed bragging about cancer-causing jokes.
But seven years later, the young man successfully gave up his unhealthy addiction and Looks slimmer in the picture and happier in 2017.
Formerly overweight Ardi, who used to drink three cans of full-fat condensed milk a day, now lives on a diet of fresh fish, fruit and vegetables.
The boy explained that it was very difficult to quit smoking.
He told CNN: “It’s hard for me to stop. If I don’t smoke, my mouth tastes sour and my head feels lightheaded.
“I’m happy now. I feel more energetic, and my body feels fresh.”
With government intervention and the special care of a therapist, Ardi’s parents were able to quit smoking for him.
His mother Diana says that Ardi will go on a rampage when she dismisses his jokes.
She said she was afraid her son would die from her addiction.
“He (will) start banging his head against the wall. He’s going crazy, hurting himself if he doesn’t get a cigarette,” Diana said.
Ardi’s parents said smoking addiction started when his father gave him his first cigarette when he was 18 months old.
Because after quitting smoking, Ardi’s love of junk food developed so quickly that his parents had to turn to a dietitian for help.
Now, with the help of food experts, Ardi is now drug-free and excels in school.
