Jury out for now: However, do not be fooled that these are harmless. They are still satisfying your nicotine addiction. Perhaps down the road you may be out of e cigs and revert back to regular ones. I know its tough (I went through it myself) but cold turkey ( and it does hurt) is the only way. GOOD LUCK

Very bad: Especially if you have asthma, and second hand smoke is also detrimental to your health, you need to avoid it like the plague.
