Queens magician Richie Magic will attempt to quit smoking by chewing 200 lit cigarettes according to the New York Daily News.

The cigarette-puffing magician is planning to lick his 40 year smoking habit by turning himself into a human ashtray.

Richie Magic who is 53, plans to set a new record by snuffing out 200 lit cigarettes in his mouth and chewing them in front of a Queens magic shop.

He intends to then quit smoking after the mouth charring event at Rogue Magic and Fun Shop in Elmhurst, wanting the stunt to burn a message in the minds of teenagers:

I want them to know that if you smoke, your mouth will look, feel and smell like a human ashtray

The record-breaking attempt comes just weeks after the illusionist and sideshow stunt man set a record for stuffing 20 lit cigarettes in his mouth in 29 seconds.

The cigarette routine was popularised by Tom Mullica, who stopped doing the routine due to health reasons, and more recently Pete Firman.

    Although amazing, this guy didn't really do the same bit as Mullica. He just shoves them in his mouth without any “grace”.
