  • You'd have to come over here so that I can put you across my lap and spank you
  • I've found that a spoonful of peanut butter often stops them cold.
  • YES!! drink a glass a water by sticking ur chin in the glass and pour the glass foward while ur drinking it works every time!
  • I stand on one leg, hold the opposite sides ear, and burp three times.... somewhere I imagine doing it in front of a hot guy, and they are gone :) Almost Magic
  • i just hold my breath by the time i wake back up theyre always gone :) full proof
  • a spoonful of peanut butter or you could get shocked-scared by something. like someone jumping out of a dark corner at you. that cures them but you gotta find a way to not know its coming for you.
  • When my children have hiccups, I tickle them until they can't stand it anymore, and it works all the time!
  • LAy back and drink a glass of water by sipping it out of a straw
  • A spoonful of peanut butter works.
  • Oh yeah... Hey genius', what if you are alergic to Peanut Butter? You die then idiot. it doesn't work everytime.
  • I have a good one that ALWAYS works for me, but it's harder than it sounds: Just forget about them. Distract yourself with tv, or occupy yourself with something else until you completely forget you even had hiccups. They'll go away. If you're conscious of your hiccups and constantly preparing for the next one, I personally believe that it just perpetuates the spasms because you tense up and brace for it every time. If you can just find a way to relax so your diaphragm stops spazzing out, you'll be fine.
  • I had a girlfirend once who got the hiccups. I wanted to tickle her, but I wasn't sure it would work. So, I ended up giving her a test tickle, or two. Seemed to work on her.
  • I have heard that a piece of red string or red thread wadded into a small ball and placed on the forehead will cure hiccups. I have not personally tested this theory, and cannot vouch for its efficacy, but I do know several people who swear it works. Weird, I know!
  • I just drink a glass of water, then hold my breath as long as I can. It works for me every time.
  • MY husband taught me a shiatsu point for the hiccups. It works almost instantly on me, like in 2-5 seconds. On him it takes about 15-30 seconds. You a finger or your thumb works well, and push in the center of your palm. You should feel a little area that is tender or softer than the rest, almost like you could sink into it with your finger. Push on that for a few seconds or hold it until the hiccups stop. I've done it to strangers, like going through a check out line and the cashier is hiccuping and I ask to take her hand and try it. They are all amazed!!! I use it a lot when I eat some spicy vinegary foods as it gives me hiccups really bad. For instance, Hot and Sour soup gives them to me every time lol!!
  • I heard this one in Belgium: Think of a white horse... (really!)
  • My grandma said she would use any kind of syrup--corn, pancake, etc. 1 or 2 Tablespoons She said if that didn't work to hold someone upside down, or if they were too big, have them stand on their head.
  • a tsp of table sugar - straight. Some scientific reason makes it work every time.
  • with your right hand do circular movements on the top of your head, whilst, with your left hand patting your tummy - never fails ha!
  • Holding your breath is not the solution but how you hold it... When you inhale and hold you should put pression out to your lungs (not out to your nose) as long as you can... that will force the muscles to stop contracting from the pressure you had on it.
  • holding my breath has always worked for me.
  • Drink lots of water but not in one go. Spread it out in small sips and usually in about 20 to 30 minutes you would have forgotten you had any hiccups.
  • drink some soda really fast, then belch as loud and long as possible (No, really, I'm serious)
  • A spoon of sugar slowly dissoved in saliva and swallowed during a hiccup is a good remedy for children. A more advanced and effective redmedy is to keep a mouthful of water, watch the frequency of hiccups and swollowig the water just a moment before the next hiccup is due. This is a perfect remedy for adults.
  • Generally, if I am at home I eat a spoonful of sugar.
  • There is a pressure point at the base of your ring finger. I haven't really mastered how exactly to press it in the right way but it works about 90% of the time for me
  • I get the hiccups pretty often, I'd say at least once per month. I do what my aunt always told me: hold your breath for twenty seconds whilst pulling your right ear lobe. It doesn't work with the left. Also, make sure you put the pressure of the air as far down into your stomach as possible.
  • 1)Drink a glass of water upside down and all the way down 2)Ask someone to ask YOU what your middle name is. Reply with the correct answer and thank them.
  • Fill your lungs with as much air as possible... then a little more, and a little more and a little more until you feel like you will pop, and then you will burp up a little air that was trapped
  • getting surprised/scared out of your wits works the best for me
  • I do - but it only works on someone else, and only the first couple of times (usually only the first). You simply say to them, "I'll give you a hundred dollars if you hick-up one more time." LITERALLY, they stop hickuping. It's called a paradoxical reflex action, also known to work in people suffereing from anxiety and pannic attacks. By forcing to try and make your body do something, it (paradoxically) works against it and will not allow it to happen. Some shrinks claim it not to work, but i've seen it in my own life, work...not just with hickups but with panic attacks as well. :)
  • Simple one that works for me every time. Simply fill a glass with water and drink from the opposite side. You have to lean forward to do it and the water comes in over the top teeth instead of the usualy bottom teeth. I recommend standing over the sink to do it because you invariably spill some!! Have to say of the many time I've had hiccups, it's worked everytime. Forget shocks, cold spoons, tickling and holding your breath - drink from the wrong side and you'll rid yourself of hiccups in no time!
  • have someone pat you on the back and try to time a burp with a hiccup works for me every time.
  • I haven't read through the multitude of answers, but I always use a little sugar on the tongue. Either mix with water on a spoon or just put it on there and swallow. Works for us.
  • Drink a glass of warm water, breathe in and out into a paper bag, hold your breathe, those are the only ones I've ever heard of.
  • Eating a spoonful of peanut butter is the only thing that works for me. I have tried the breathing and water drinking tricks, and they weren't effective.
  • I second the sugar. It works for me every time. Dry heaping teaspoon chased with a drink of water.
  • hold your breath for 4 minutes.
  • I do it just by concentrating; works every time for me. I relax, I mean really relax, slowing my heart beat and breathing. While doing that, I clear my head as much as possible. When I've reached a certain point (I know it when I get there) I eliminate the hiccups. I don't think it in words, just that they are not there.. nonexistent, and they are.
  • Guaranteed remedy: One teaspoon of raw sugar swallowed very slowly.
  • This works for me 100% I take a teaspoon of vinegar.
  • I hiccuped big time today ... What I did -I inhaled and held my breath, drank some water ... and then exhaled ... Hiccup's gone. Try it. Good luck.
  • Scare yourself, or have someone startle/scare you. That worked for me after I tried every possible remedy.
  • fill a glass up with water. Sit it on the table and bend over and drink from it without lifting the glass. Works every time!
  • Okay, this is going to sound kinda crazy, but I SWEAR IT WORKS!!! Fill a glass of water. Put a paper towel over it, and keep the glass covered. Sip the water through the paper towel, finish the water drinking it through the paper towel (or napkin) YOUR HICCUPS WILL BE CURED!! +3 for you. :)
  • A few people mention sugar. One expert said that anything grainy would work including sand or salt. I guess most people prefer tthe sugar.
  • maybe mouth of the sufferer.
  • Takes 2 people. The helper hold the ears shut. The sufferer hold his nose shut, takes a BIG breath of air and drinks 8oz water. Has worked for years in my family. The pressure created causes the air bubble to burst.
  • drinking from the wrong side of the cup, the one further from your mouth. you have to lean over so ur head is upside down and kinda pour it into your mouth. it makes them go away everytime
  • Drink a can of Coke and burp away
  • drink a full glass of water in one drink with a knife in it....it works
  • i drink 10 sips of water,then i get the sugar bowl and put my finger in water and put the wet finget into the sugarbowl and touch the tip of your tounge with that finger,it works with me,i hope it does the trick for you,good luck.
  • Plug your ears and drink water. I know it sounds stupid, but it works every time.
  • One neighbor takes a tsp of sugar. The other guy he fills a glass with water. Bends over forward and drinks the water upside down.
