As a longtime clusterhead I have given up drinking as we all know what that can bring on. So in my brilliant thinking, I needed to add a vice to use as a crutch. So along came smoking. I somehow figured that it would relax me and calm me through the anxiety I felt during my cycles. Of course my cycles have been extrordinarily bad since I started smoking and I never put the two together. Or maybe I was just being incredibly stubborn and stupid. Anyhow, I quit and a short week later, my clusters have dramatically decreased in severity and frequency. I feel like I can cope so much better. I don't know what's in that crap that makes them so much worse but I'm convinced that they certainly affected my headaches in a negative way. My cycle is a good 3 weeks from being over but I'm really pleased that the last 3 weeks probably won't be the worst. Just a thought.
