I agree with Drummer; clusters are purely physical. I have been up, down and all around, and clusters have been right there along for the ride. However, I do enjoy a trip to the comedy club. Laughter is fantastic medicine to combat the tendency to let these things get you down. I would move in if it would change the headaches. I would move back to Iowa and collect bottles and cans at a nickle a pop if stress caused them.

BTW, re: smoking. I had quit for 5 years when I got my first cluster. After a couple-three CH's I grabbed the Winstons again. A year later I quit for 3-1/2 years. Got down and bought a pack and have been smoking since. Working up to quitting again. Smoking/not smoking/quitting smoking has made absolutely no difference to the CH's. Smoking has made a difference to my wallet and quality of life, and I smell like an ashtray, and I hate it. (Lighting one up as I type this).

Quit when you can. Expect to feel better and be healthier and richer. Don't expect CH to change.
