Yeah, that was me. Three or five cigs with my morning coffee. That morning smoke was the hardest to give up. For me, I just had to vape thru the cravings...and it took a good 45 minutes before I got enough nicotine on board to finally stop the cravings. After 2-3 weeks the morning cravings subsided.
One word of caution. After vaping my head off with 24 mg liquid for an hour or more, and downing 2-3 cups of high octane coffee...well, by mid morning I could get either woozy or pretty wired (think running around like a headless chicken). My solution was to cut back on the coffee...half caffeine, half decaf.
