Smoking is a habit that is bad for anyone as people have seen by reading books and watching ads on television.
Most people also know that secondhand smoke is bad as well, especially for children. A 2-year-old boy from Brazil captured the attention of many across the world when they saw that he was smoking 40 cigarettes a day. Many people wanted to know where his parents were to allow him to smoke like this.
Pictures of little Ardi were taken while he was sitting on his tricycle. The Indonesian government was outraged after seeing the pictures and vowed to do something to stop children from smoking.
Ardi was taken to a rehabilitation center to help him stop smoking.He soon started craving food instead of cigarettes, and he started to gain weight. Aside from the junk food that he would eat, Ardi started drinking up to three cans of condensed milk every day.
A nutritionist got involved with Ardi to help him lead a healthier life. He has lost quite a bit of weight since he got out of rehab and seems to be happier.
He no longer smokes 40 cigarettes a day and has learned to eat a balanced diet to maintain his weight and to shed more pounds in the future.
