So what do you do when you have hiccups? Does it work? /totally didn't start thread to get rid of own hiccups
I'm a silhouette, asking every now and then
Is it over yet? Will I ever feel again?
I'm a silhouette, chasing rainbows on my own
But the more I try to move on, the more I feel alone
So I watch the summer stars to lead me home.

I eat either something sugary or a spoon full of sugar. (makes the hiccups, go down! In the most delightful way!)

Works (almost) every time!

I just drink water. Usually, the hiccups go away after a few minutes when I do that.

I drink water upside-down. (That is, I take a drink, turn upside-down with it in my mouth, then swallow.)

It always works for me, while everything else does nothing.

I will be moving my account to Songbird over the course of immediately. The signature will stay as is for posterity and reference.

I'm always like sitting there unable to access food or drink, like when I'm in class or laying in bed. So I usually just wait it out. Besides, I've tried all the common cures, but nothing's really consistently worked for me.

I run to gulp down some water, and most of the time it goes away. If it doesn't stop, or I can't get water, I try to leave it alone for a while. Over time, it'll fade away.

I drink a moderate amount of water - with little break in between sips - until my breathing and heart rate catch up with each other. Normally works for me. My grandmother used to tell me an old remedy was to stand on my head in the corner of a room for fifteen minutes and they would go away. I eventually came to reason that it wasn't a particularly helpful remedy and I made myself light-headed for years all for naught.

Nothing. I suffer through them because nothing works.

The old 'not breathing' technique actually works for me. Which is good because I usually get them when I don't have access to water or anything. So I just hold my breath, wait, suck in more air, wait, suck in a bit more, wait, and then let it out. Then voila they are gone.

I either hold my breath for a few seconds, or just simply drink lots of water. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don't (though the latter is more effective).

I usually just wait it out too. After a while I forget that I have the hiccups and then I'll remember later and think "didn't I have the hiccups?" but they're gone.

Mind over matter, baby!

I exhale heavily and inhale as little as I can to get rid of that excess air or whatever. Also, I drink water. Between the two, the hiccups will go away eventually.
