In an unusual way to quit smoking, a determined 42-year-old Turkish man has locked his head in a cage in order to come out of the habit.
Ibrahim Yucel, who is trying to shun his 26-year-old habit of smoking two packets of cigarettes per day, hands over the keys of his head cage to his wife and daughter as he leaves his home every day.
Yucel has tried several times to kick the habit but without success and is wearing the helmet-like cage in a last-ditch attempt to quit smoking.
Yucel’s father had died of lung cancer caused by smoking few years ago.
Yucel’s family was initially shocked when he donned the unusual head gear a week ago, but they have now started supporting his determination to stop smoking.
According to Yucel, he was inspired to create the helmet-like head cage by observing motorcycle helmets, after trying without success to quit smoking several times in the past.
