Remember That Chain-Smoking 2-Year-Old From Indonesia? Now He's A Healthy, Cig-Free Fourth Grader!

| Filed under: RehabHealthAddictionSmoking

Ardi Rizal is now living a life free of addiction.

The 9-year-old Indonesian boy became a viral sensation back in 2010 when he was just a tricycle-riding, cig-puffing 2-year-old with a habit of smoking two packs a day (pictured above).

Embarrassed Indonesian government officials brought the child into rehab two years later where he managed to kick the smoking habit — but he soon replaced it with another vice.

According to reports, the boy then developed a food addiction and, by the age of 5, weighed 53 pounds — 13 pounds heavier than the recommended weight for a child his age.

Rizal's mother said he would consume three cans of condensed milk a day and other fatty foods. The boy would bang his head on the wall, a tic he picked up while smoking, if he didn't get his fix.

Congrats to The Situation!

In a new interview with People, Mike Sorrentino opens up about his difficulties with drugs and with the law. In case you hadn't heard, the Jersey Shore star was indicted this month on evading taxes for nearly $9 million of income.

Considering how his last tax troubs hurt his recovery process, there was reason to worry.

The reality star was actually sober for nearly two years after going to rehab in 2012. But after being charged with tax evasion for the first time in 2014, he needed a way to cope.

Now, he didn't turn to drugs immediately. Obviously tanning and laundry aren't that good for relieving stress, but the gym was. Until he worked out so hard he cracked his ribs.

It was the painkillers prescribed by a doctor that sent him back down the path of relapse. He laments:

Melanie Griffith is absolutely fearless!

In a new interview with Porter magazine out Friday, the Working Girl star opens up about all those things no one ever talks about — her divorces, her addiction, and most shockingly her plastic surgery.

On the latter, Melanie says she never even knew anyone else could tell — until she started seeing some very harsh headlines that got her rethinking it all.

She admits:

"No, I didn't [realize] until people started saying. ‘Oh my god, what has she done?!' I was so hurt I went to a different doctor and he started dissolving all of this shit that this other woman doctor had put in. Hopefully, I look more normal now."

We think she looks amazing. But "normal" has never been a part of the star's life. The daughter of film legend Tippi Hedren briefly married Miami Vice star Don Johnson at just 18 years old.

Years later, after an addiction problem landed her in rehab, she and Don
