'Desperate' man locks head in cage to quit smoking

Melbourne, July 08 (ANI): A Turkish man from Kutahya,is so desperate to quit his smoking habit that he has locked his head in a wire cage to prevent himself from putting a cigarette in his mouth.

Ibrahim Yucel is trying to kick a 26-year-old habit of smoking two packets of cigarettes per day, News.com.au reported.

The 42-year-old told Hurriyet Daily News that he came up with the unusual idea after watching motorbike riders wearing helmets.

Yucel, who locks cage on his head every day, said that he realised he had to wear something on his head so that he could not physically bring a cigarette to his lips.

He gives the keys of the cage to his wife and daughter so that he's not tempted to remove it.

Yucel said that he wanted to get rid of the habit because his father succumbed to lung cancer several years ago. (ANI)
