 Now, A Four-year-old Cigar Addict in a Taiwanese Rehab!
A four-year-old boy is being treated in a Taiwanese rehab for his addiction to cigars.

The boy and his brothers, also below 10 years, were taken to the Taiwanese rehab centre after their dad caught them stealing his tobacco.

When asked about their addiction, the boys said that they did it because they thought their father looked "cool" when he smoked.

"The answer was what I had expected, but the hardest to accept," the Daily Telegraph quoted the father, as telling China Times.

The four-year-old also admitted to borrowing cigarettes from school pals when he failed to steal any from his father.

Meanwhile, Dr Xue Guangjie from Gaoxiong city rehab centre criticised the dad for failing to kick the habit as he himself came to only two sessions.
