A video has emerged of an Indonesian toddler who is hooked on cigarettes.

The footage shows two-year-old Ardi Rizal reclining with a cigarette in his mouth. He waves it around, and draws back deeply on the cigarette.

Ardi's parents claim that the child is addicted to nicotine.

His mother Diana 26, told Britain's Sun newspaper she felt powerless to deny the child.

"He's totally addicted," she said.

"If he doesn't get his cigarettes, he gets angry and screams and batters his head against the wall. He tells me he feels dizzy and sick."

Ardi Rizal smoked his first cigarette when he was 18 months old and now smokes 40 cigarettes a day.

The overweight toddler is deft at blowing smoke rings, but is so unfit he cannot play with other children.

"I'm not worried about his health and— he looks healthy," his father told reporters.

There has been an increase in the number of smokers aged between four and nine in Indonesia over recent years.

Authorities have blamed aggressive advertising and smoking parents.

According to the Sun, Indonesian officials have offered to buy the family a car if the boy quits.
