Smoking, as we all know, is a) addictive and b) unhealthy. But it’s really not normal to put your head in a cage to kick the habit.
That’s what Ibrahim Yücel from Turkey did, taking the extreme measure after smoking two packets of cigarettes every single day for over two decades.
In video posted in 2013, which resurfaced on Reddit recently, he walked around his local village wearing the contraption - as you do.
He was moved to stop smoking after his father sadly died from lung cancer and - inspired by motorcycle helmets - he used copper wire to fashion the cage, and locked it up and gave his family the key. It was reported that he could eat crackers and sip on water through the cage but had to be unlocked to have proper meals.
Commenting on pictures of the cage on Reddit, someone said: “Extreme problems require extreme actions.”
While another added: “I have to rub my eyes and scratch the side of my nose just looking at this.”
