A 5-year-old boy was found to be an alcoholic after being trained by his drunken father for a year in Wuhan, capital of Hubei province.
Fei Fei, who now drinks with every meal, is depressed if he can't drink even for a meal.
When Fei Fei's mother Jiang Qing, 28, left home to find employment outside the city a year ago, Fei Fei's alcoholic father started to train his son to drink.
Initially the lad was given beer, then gradually weaned onto white liquor.
Jiang is now finding it difficult to help her son kick the habit.
