Chinese Boy Smokes 20 A Day

by | 24th, June 2009

IN Tianjin, China, China Radio International spots a two and a half year old Chinese boy, Tong Liangliang, smoking his 20 cigarettes a day.

The story goes that Tong was born with a hernia and encouraged to smoke at 18 months by his father to fend off the pain.

Says CRI:

“The father wasn’t aware how serious the toddler’s habit had become until the child began to increase the number of cigarettes he smoked per day.”

Is Tong the word’s youngest smoker? And does he now only smoke when he drinks?
