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.
