For now…and we hope for always!
Reports have come in this morning that after some extensive therapy, the famous Indonesia two-year-old who loved to suck ash will suck no more!
Arist Merdeka Sirait, who is the secretary-general for the national commission for child protection in Indonesia says that his extensive specialized therapy has helped stop the vile habit. She explains:
"He has quit smoking and the most important thing is he doesn't ask for cigarettes anymore He received psychosocial therapy for one month, during which therapists kept him busy with activities and encouraged him to play with kids of the same age. We diverted his addiction from cigarettes to playing."
Fantastic news! We're going to stay optimistic and hope that when he goes home, he'll stay healthy and away from those disgusting things!
Congrats, lil guy! You're doing loads of good for yourself!
