An Indonesian baby on 40 cigarettes a day! Would you believe that?
A tourist attraction in this native indonesia for the wrong reasons. A toddler in the heart of Sumatra is famous for his nicotine addiction. He started smoking when he was just eighteen month old and is hooked on 40 a day. If he is denied his cigarettes he is screaming, slamming his head on the floor, even getting sick if he doesn’t get his two packs a day.
His father introduced him to smoking and has to find now an equivalent to $5 a day to pay for his child’s nicotine addiction. He insists that his son is healthy. The child is now in rehab by the Indonesian National commission in child protection supervision.

Nicotine Dependency a Mental Illness and Permanent Disease
I’m sorry but there’s simply no nice way to say this. Nicotine dependency, like alcoholism, is a real mental illness and disease. While able to fully and comfortably arrest our chemical addiction, there is no cure. It’s permanent. Like alcoholism there’s just one rule.
Once we’re free, just one, using just once and we have to go back. You see, it isn’t a matter of how much willpower we have, but how the brain’s priorities teacher teaches, how nerve and memory cell highways that recorded years of nicotine feedings have left each of us wired for relapse.
