A man locked his head in a cage in an attempt to quit smoking.



Ibrahim Yucel took drastic action after realising that he had been puffing away at two packets of cigarettes per day for the past two decades.

Yucel, from Turkey, decided it was time to quit after his father passed away from lung cancer and because he wants to see his family grow.

He was reportedly inspired by motorbike riders wearing helmets and gave his family the key to the head guard to make sure he resists temptation.

Yucel's previous attempts to give up smoking had continuously failed and his wife decided to support his strange idea, despite her initial embarrassment.

The story emerged on the social media site Reddit, where one user commented: "I have to rub my eyes and scratch the side of my nose just looking at this."
