Ending your cycle psychologically

It seems to me that you can sometimes end your cluster
cycle psychologically. If you look at some of the things that
people say ended their cycle, sometimes these things
seem bizarre.

For instance, the first time I experienced a cycle, I
thought I was going through some soft of chocolate withdrawl, since
I had stopped eating it shortly before. When I made the connection,
I binged on chocolate, and the cluster stopped the next day!

The conventional wisdom is that chocolate may trigger CH, not
stop it, so I believe that I had convinced myself that I found an answer, and
because of that, it actually worked. BTW The chocolate
treatment has not worked since. ;-)

Anyone else experience anything like this? Stopping cluster cycles using means
that don't make sense?
