Forget hypnosis or the nicotine patch! A 42-year old Turkish man named Ibrahim Yücel has devised a unique way to stop himself from smoking: wearing a helmet-like wire cage on his head.
İbrahim Yücel, who is trying to kick a 26-year habit of smoking two packets of cigarettes per day, gives the keys of his head cage to his wife and daughter when he leaves home every day. In this way, he is unable to open the cage to smoke during the day, even if he craves a smoke.
He says 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.
