Desperate Move! Man wears hideous-looking cage to stop himself from smoking


Ibrahim Yücel wears a cage over his  head in a bid to stop himself from smoking

A lifelong smoker keen to quit has taken  drastic measures to kick the habit – he has locked his head in a cage which  prevents him from putting a cigarette in his mouth.

Ibrahim Yücel is so unsure of his own  willpower that he entrusts the keys to the bizarre contraption to his family so  he is not tempted to release himself.



The Turkish man was inspired by another  successful health campaign – the safety helmets worn by motorbike riders.

Mr Yücel, 42, has been smoking two packets of  cigarettes a day since the age of 16, according to Hürriyet.

However, since his father died of lung  cancer, he has been desperate to quit for the good of his health and his  family. He has made several attempts to give up, but  has always returned to the habit despite his efforts.

Now that’s a different kind of stop smoking aid!
