Hallo Karen
Smoke can actually be a migraine trigger, and the side effects and harmful effects of smoking are too risky to use it as a "medication" for migraines. There are safer medicines on the market you can use. If it is really bad, see a neurologist or headache clinic.

I doubt that. What ever you don''t start smoking. I also suffer from migraines. Go see your doc and try find out what causes your migraines.

SOunds very unlikely.
A great help for migraines is a herb called feverfew - ask your health shop for a supplement. You take it every day &  it reduces how often you get them &  the severity.
