There is a great chance you have already read on the Internet about the boy from Indonesia who smoked 40 cigarettes a day. He started this cigarette addiction and shocked the world when he was only 2 years old.
That story is more than 8 years old. The boy, whose name is Ardi Rizal, has finally beat his smoking addiction thanks to the media and security organizations for children. He developed a food addiction in order to replace his cigarette cravings.
His favorite food was condensed milk, which he consumed minimum 3 cans a day. His carbohydrate intake was extremely high. His parents were very concerned about the poor nutrition of their child, so they put him on a strict diet. They used the abundant fresh fish, fruit and vegetables in the village they live in. Also, the parents demanded their other children stop giving Ardi junk food, no matter how much he demanded.
Ardi underwent treatment to overcome his addiction to food and today he leads a healthy lifestyle. He stays away from nicotine, has a healthy diet and the results are amazing.
According to information from the Health Ministry, nearly 4 million Indonesian children, between the ages of 10 and 14, become smokers every year.
