Everyone knows smoking is bad for you. It can cause serious diseases, like emphysema and cancer, and even if you don’t get sick from it, it can still cut years off your life. That’s what made this story so damn disturbing.
Now, even 8 years later, Ardi Rizal beat his addiction. The reason for that were the media and security organizations for children. This young boy, in order to replace his cravings for cigarettes, developed a dependency on food.
He went through many treatments to beat this addiction and it can be said that he is on a good way now!
“When Ardi first quit smoking he would demand a lot of toys,” his mother said. “He would bang his head on the wall if he couldn’t get what he wanted. Now I don’t give him cigarettes, but he eats a lot. With so many people living in the house it’s hard to stop him from getting food.”
Ardi, has proven himself to be a strong willed kid though, and has now successfully kicked his junk food habit too. He now stays away from cigarettes, eats healthy, and the results speak for themselves. He is happier and healthier than he has ever been.
We should all take Ardi as an inspiration to overcome our own bad habits.
