Learning About Ecigs

Are e-cigarettes really safe to use? I have been a smoker for over 10 years now and I really want to be able to switch to something else that will help me kick the habit. Because I have children, I like the idea that what I am learning about ecigs makes it so that they do not smell any smoke and they are not taking in any of the harsh chemicals that come from secondhand smoke. Can I find out more about what people’s experiences are with ecigs? I would really like to switch soon, I just want to learn more about them.
