Baby's health Crappy Parents Hernia Tong Liangliang World's Youngest Smoker

Chinese Two-Year-Old Smokes A Pack Of Cigarettes A Day

Yes! You read that right. Tong Liangliang was taught how to smoke by his father, who believed the habit would alleviate pain caused by a hernia.

The toddler now smokes a pack of cigarettes a day and throws a tantrum if he can’t get his fix.

‘The father wasn’t aware of how serious the toddler’s habit became until the child began to increase the number of cigarettes he smoked per day’, China Radio International reported.

Tong received his first cigarette at the age of 18 months in a bid to reduce the discomfort caused by his hernia. The boy’s tender age meant he was too young to have an operation.


A. What is he smoking to cure pain?

B. My son had a double hernia operation when he weighed 6lbs…

This little guy could die from lung cancer before he’s old enough to start school. Someone needs to be taken away from his enabling parents and taken to rehab.

  • This is unbelievable! Why isn’t something being done? That child should be taken away from his unfit parents!

  • While I agree that it’s sad and scary that his parents introduced him to the habit, it sounds like the intentions were pure. I strongly disagree that this is cause to take him away from his parents. Let us not forget that this child is in China, where I doubt medical technology makes a hernia operation on a very small child possible. Maybe the other responders here would feel more comfortable living in China, where it’s ok for the government to do whatever they want with your children, including forced abortions.

  • LOL…..hilarious! 😀

    …*stops and thinks*. Actually, pretty sad.

    …no, hilarious! Bwaaaaaaaa haaaa haaaaa! (Evil laugh)
