 Two-Year-Old Chinese Boy Is World's Youngest Smoker
A two-year-old Chinese boy is the world's youngest smoker.

And it was Tong Liangliang's dad who taught him how to spark up between tantrums and milky vomits.

Liangliang's dad said his son was born with a hernia, and being too young for an operation, has taken up smoking to help him deal with the pain.

"The father wasn't aware how serious the toddler's habit had become until the child began to increase the number of cigarettes he smoked per day," News.com.au quoted news agency CRI as saying.

However, The Guinness Book of World Records may not accept the feat, as it has refused such requests before on the grounds that it "promoted a harmful habit".
