Tong Liangliang is a six-year-old Chinese boy who was taught by his father to smoke at a very tender age. His father believed that smoking would ease the pain triggered by hernia. Tong was at the age of 18 months when he smoked his first cigarette. The father was not conscious of the seriousness of his son’s condition until the child increased the quantity of cigarettes he smoked. Tong is currently undergoing therapy.
