Oh, okay... I was thinking plastic bag over the head or something weird like that...

And for the record, holding my breath as long as I can and slowly releasing it usually works for me, it can take a couple of tries though...

Yep, bitters and lime if you're at the bar.. always works.

Or I plug my ears and hold my breath for 20 seconds.

I can't get rid of mine and they're always violent.
They just have to go away on their own for me. Damn diaphragm.

A spoonful of peanut butter always does it for me. But sometimes I do a spoonful of sugar.

That works for me some of the time but not always!


Genuinely getting a fright does however always work but if you know it's coming then it doesn't really work

i just try to anticipate when the next one will come. just pause and take a "wait for it... wait for it" moment and focus on it so much that it will actually not come. a friend had me try this a while back and it works for me everytime.

We use Amitriptyline in the pharmacy. I did hear someone say they drink a tablespoon of Astroglide and that helps his chronic hiccups.

That's because you stop all movement and slow down your breathing to nearly a stop when you wait for the next hiccup. I imagine holding your breath would work similarly well.

Its just a spasm in your diaphram and just controling your breath will help.

Take a deep breath and hold it.

I hiccup so often that I begin to think if I got a disease or something

Drink warm water in a coffee mug with a table knife laying against your temple while you drink the whole thing.

Works 95% of the time all the time~
