I'm a "big" smoker... 2 pack a day.
Obviously i'm sure that smoke damages our health but..... i also smoke DURING the attacks (and this is not too easy, i burned my fingers many times, and sometimes my face....)
This help me more than Imitrex.
The only thing i cannot do while i'm smoking is hyperventilation (obviously).
BTW I stopped to smoke for 2 years, and clusters come in the same way an intensity.
This is NOT to say you all "smoke, and the pain decrease!" but i'm my case it helps me.
