IMHO, for most folks, smoking has no effect one way or the other on cluster headaches. It does not trigger them nor stop them. It does not prolong nor shorten them. Does it help cope? Yes for those that are addicted to this smelly, filthy, expensive habit. Yes, I'm a smoker.
This subject has been discussed here many times. The best that we have come up with is...If a person smokes all the time, how come he/she doesn't have ch all the time? And if the smoker quits, why doesn't the ch quit? And if a person has never smoked, how come they still get ch?
Also IMHO, most agree that CH'ers may have addictive personalities. It may be an addiction to smokes, alcohol, drugs (the "sin" addictions) or chocolate or food or a thousand other things. Some, maybe quite a few, coming to this web site many times a day is an addiction.
