  1. Hi we are new to this forum and are asking for some help. We contacted the DINET contact line yesterday, and were advised to enter the forum to see what others have done in this situation. So any help would be really appreciated. Our 27 year old son has POTS and is desperately trying to quit smoking. Using patches, gum etc makes the syncope and heart rate worse (and he has been told that it could actually kill him to do so - not a good thought!) Trying to go "cold turkey" increases the stress levels so much that flash anger becomes dangerous. He takes no medication to manage his POTS as he is severely chemical insensitive. What do you suggest? He has a good doctor who does his best with our son's condtion, but some specific advice might be beneficial. We live in Australia and any help would be appreciated. Thank you Regards, Pandaaus
