I was taught the best way to rid yourself of this was to take a breath and hold it for 10 seconds, then without releasing that breath take in more and hold for another 10 seconds, let about half out, and hold for 5-10 more. If you have a hiccough while doing it, it won't work but if you don't, you'll be rid of them.

This works every time. Press a finger in each ear and have someone else hold a glass of water to your mouth so you can drink at least 6 ounces or more all at once. The hicups will disappear.

Alright....hiccoughs are caused by spasms of your diaphragm. To get rid of your hiccoughs, you have to stop your diaphragm from spasming. In order to do this you must fill your lungs with as much air as possible, and hold your breath, while squeezing your lungs against your diaphragm. This will stop the spasms, thus getting rid of your hiccoughs. Simple as that.

swallow a teaspoon of coarse sugar without any water. The roughness of the sugar will disturb the muscular spasm in the throat and stop the hiccup. This works for me every time. Perhaps swallowing anything coarse would do the trick, but sugar will melt away, leaving no solids in the throat.

HAVE SOMEONE PLACE TH PALMS OF THEIR HAND OVER YOUR EARS AND APPLY PRESSUSE WHILE YOU DRINK A FULL GLASS OF WATER. HAVE THEM REMOVE THEIR HANDS GENTLY FROM YOUR EARS. THIS ALWAYS WORKS FOR ME

Drink a small amount of pickle juice (a teaspoon will do just fine).

Hiccough's are caused from your stomach contracting. Lay down or lean back and relax your entire body. The sooner you relax the sooner your hiccoughs will go away.

The perfect cure!!!!!!

As soon as you hiccough, make yourself burp! This really works! Hiccoughs are the result of trapped air in the lungs....what better way to relieve this pain then by removing the air immediately by burping? Even if you're in public, as soon as you hiccough....make yourself BURP! It really does work!!

I do not know why, or how, but this really works.

Pinch your earlobe as hard as you can, for as long as you can. When you let go, your hiccoughs will be gone.
