Ardi Rizal built this habit of smoking at a young age and his parents had to go through a lot to make him quit this addiction. Soon after they weaned him off this addiction, Rizal got addicted to food and would every day gorge on food to the point that he became addicted to it. His parents then had to take help from a food specialist to help control his diet and now the kid is living a good life and excelling at school too.
Ardi Rizal, the world’s chubbiest kid who smoked 40 cigarettes a day and gorged on food has quit his ways and is now living an unrecognizable life.
Rizal was only two when he started puffing away at cigarettes in his family’s backyard in Sumatra, Indonesia.
Seven years on and young Ardi looks completely different after shedding pounds and giving up his nasty habits.
The glutinous youngster used to drink three cans of fatty condensed milk a day but now lives on a diet of fresh fish, fruit and vegetables.
He told CNN that smoking was the hardest habit for him to give up.
“It was hard for me to stop. If I am not smoking, my mouth taste is sour and my head feel dizzy,” he told the network.
“I am happy now. I feel more enthusiastic, and my body is feeling fresh.”
It was with government intervention and intensive specialist care that Ardi’s parents were able to wean him off the nicotine.
His mum Diana said the youngster would throw tamper tantrums whenever she threw away his cigarettes and ignored his mum’s fears about him dying.
“He (would) start to smash his head to the wall. He was crazy, hurting himself if he didn’t get a cigarette,” Diana said.
According to his folks, Ardi started smoking when his dad gave him his first cigarette when he was only 18 months old.
After giving up the ciggies, Ardi quickly developed a love for junk food and chugged on the pounds forcing his parents to call for professional help.
With help from food specialists, Ardi living a good life and is doing good at school.
