Horrifying images show carefree two-year-old Rapi Ananda Pamungkas toking on a cigarette as his smiling mother watches on.

At just two months old, the toddler started smoking by picking up cigarette butts off the floor near is mum’s market stall in Sukabumi, Indonesia.

Rapi’s taste for fags escalated when shoppers passing by the marketplace began giving him cigarettes, encouraging his filthy habit.

Almost two months on, Rapi is in the throes of addiction and is said to smoke at least a pack a day.


His mum Maryati, 35, said: “It started with picking up cigarette butts and now he’s smoking.”

She has confessed that she keeps feeding his insatiable habit to prevent him from flying into a rage.

Maryati said he “cannot sleep” and starts “rampaging and crying” unless she buys him a pack of fags every day.

She said every time she and her husband Misbahudin try to wean him off them, he throws hysterical tantrums.
