Yesterday, I was introduced to the story of the 2-year old Indonesian boy who has a two-pack a day cigarette habit because his father introduced him to smoking at an early age. His father says that the boy started his habit when he was 18 months old. Everyone seems to have had something to say about this story.
Naturally, all this YouTube publicity has created a bad image for all parents in the boys country and has also tarnished the national image of Indonesia. The Indonesian government has stated that it is discouraging the parents from allowing the boy to continue smoking. The parents note that the boy cries in pain when he doesn't get his fix.
