In brief: Medications

Cluster headaches are a specific type of headaches which has a specific pattern and diagnostic criteria.
Simple measures you can try are using over the counter medications as appropriate and discontinuing smoking or smoking exposure (e.g. Second hand smoke). Persistent headaches should be evaluated by an appropriately trained specialty consultant as there are specific prescriptive treatments.
