Is This The Youngest Alcoholic In History?
It was only a couple of weeks ago that we were all watching a shocking video of a toddler smoking in China, and now comes an equally outrageous story of a two-year-old boy reportedly addicted to alcohol.
Cheng Cheng is said to prefer wine and bottles of beer to milk, according to the Shanhaiist, and is known as ‘Little Winebibber’ by local media.
The implications for his parents don’t look very good and they are under investigated from local authorities. It has all stemmed from a photo that emerged of him drinking from a bottle of alcohol, and Cheng Cheng could now be placed into permanent care.
Reports suggest he first tried alcohol at 10 months old when his father dipped his chopsticks in some wine for him to try.
Cheng is able to drink a bottle of beer without any noticeable effects, according to his parents, and throws tantrums if they do not give him beer. (We can’t help but wonder if that’s their only defense for feeding him booze, because he was crying)
‘His eyes are always on the alcohol bottles. We can only try their best to store the bottles in a place which in not seen by him,’ explained his aunt Cai Teng.
‘As sometimes he is really noisy, we have no options but let him to try a little bit of wine.’
Cheng’s aunt has insisted the family will no longer provide the toddler any more alcohol, with a meeting set to determine the child’s future this week
