A four-year-old boy in southeastern China smoking cigarettes like a pro has gone viral in social media.
In a video shared by a neighbor online, the child can be seen smoking tobacco and chewing betel nut like he’s done it his whole life.
“[He] has been smoking for a year or two, can’t quit,” the neighbor said.
This means he has been smoking since he was two or three.
The boy’s grandmother is reportedly always busy with household chores, while his grandfather is hooked on mahjong.
Alone most of the time, he steals cigarettes from a shop and picks up butts on the ground left by other smokers.
The child’s situation eventually reached local authorities, who issued a “serious warning” to his grandparents.
