I have a great doctor, a headache specialist who also has chronic clusters. He gave me two very good pieces of advice: 1) no guns in the house and 2) NO ALCOHOL while in season.
I didn't know about the alcohol for years; I used to wash down pain pills with whiskey trying to numb myself. HUGE mistake: made torture last for hours and hours. Also alcohol is definately a trigger for me, starting one in 15 - 20 mins.
So, if you're in doubt, it might be a good idea to stay away from alcohol until this bout passes.
Hoping the best for you.
