I can't believe I only recently learned of this. My mother actually told me about it. I had always tried unsuccessfully to just hold my breath. It never worked well. Now, I take a deep breath and sip water to roughly the count of ten. It has worked perfectly two times now. It is my new favorite remedy for hiccups! I hope this helps someone else.

While holding your breath, take a drink of any beverage. Soda or sweet tea works great, but I don't think it matters about the beverage. Usually one sip is all it takes.

The remedy I have used for 20 years: Drink 10 swallows of water straight without breathing. Works every time.
