3 doctors agree

In brief: NO

There are chemicals in the e-cigarettes and we do not know what the effects of these chemicals are.
And with a history of asthma it is even more of a reason to not use the e-cigarette.

In brief: NO!

E-cigarettes (at least some of them) are still designed to deliver nicotine into your body, with all of its vasoactive and additctive characteristics.
Why smoke any cigarettes? You "look cool" to no one but losers who smoke themselves. Once you become physiologically addicted to nicotine, even when you want to quit, it is more difficult than getting off heroin! just say no now! please!
