I had hiccups forever, and a friend of mine looked straight at me and said, "If you hiccup again, I'll buy you a case of beer!"' They went away ASAP. I've done it with several friends and it works! Try it.

Hi! I would like to share with you something very important about hiccups elemination. Everybody please rest assured. Hiccups are curable. 100%. In a matter of seconds. Sounds unbelievable, but is true. Everybody say good-bye to any hiccups sufferings, or mere annoyance from ordinary hiccuping. You will be free to do anything you want, the way you want, enjoy eating your food any way - too fast, or too much, or fat and spicy, enjoy anything in life, that might trigger hiccuping, and in case you are bothered by hiccups, you will just laugh at them. Because I got the UNHICCUPER, or the HICCUPS BUSTER, that gets you rid of hiccups in just 15 seconds, every time without fail. This dream cure is the only working one on the planet and will get the world rid of hiccups once and for all. There will be no more uncontrollable, or unstoppable hiccups. Them hiccups will become history. Everybody will know how to get rid of hiccups and will forget, that hiccuping ever was a problem. Many factors cause hiccups, but finally all of them result in spasms of the diaphragm. The main effect of the unhiccuper is in getting your diaphragm rid of spasms. You can do it everywhere in case you start hiccuping. It is very easy and 100% safe and effective.

Here is what to do:

Either standing or sitting in a chair, lean your head backwards as much as you can, to the maximum. Breathe normally. Count up to 15. Slowly bring your head back to normal position. The hiccups are gone (for a long time).

Interesting... My husband drinks water from the wrong side of the glass, so in fact he is doing exactly the same thing, lowering his head as far as he can to be able to drink from the other side. Now I know, next time one of us has the hicups we will try without the glass, much easier.

I had a bad case of hiccups and a co-worker recommended I take a TUMS. Within 5 minutes the hiccups were gone!

How to cure hiccups 95% of the time. Vinegar, it doesn't matter what kind. The trick is to find the most sour thing you can. Make sure you take a good amount. 1 spoonfull is all you need. If you make a face when taking it, then it will work. Lemon juice, lime juice or anything super sour will work. It's weird because you expect the next hiccup to come and it never does. Guaranteed to work or your money back. lol

Let me give you my cure for hiccups. I have been using this method for years and have never had it fail to work. Before I found this cure I would sometimes get the hiccups and it would last for hours. I use regular white sugar. Use 1 heaping teaspoon but the key is how you do it. You have to hold your breath and then dump the sugar down your throat all at one time and swallow it and keep on holding your breath for as long as possible. It will not work if you don't hold your breath. It really does work. I know this is a problem for a lot of people so, good luck!

Yes, this is a great remedy for hiccups and my mom used to give this to us kids growing up. One teaspoon always did the trick. I never heard before that there was a special way to take this, but I do know that eating that whole teaspoon of white sugar never failed. Honey would be more nutritious than white sugar, but I don't know if honey would work for hiccups.

Hi, the cure I use for hiccups is put a stainless steel knife in a glass of water. Drink the water with the handle of the knife touching your temple. In a few minutes your hiccups will be gone.

growing up my parents would always give us sugar and vinegar (the vinegar gets rid of the hiccups, and the sugar makes it taste better). all you have to do is get a teaspoon of sugar, pour enough vinegar on top to make the sugar wet, and as soon as you get it down the hiccups are gone

I have to say, Apple Cider vinegar works really well for me. Filled a shot glass half full with raw Apple Cider Vinegar and shot it down. Worked instantly

I had hiccups for two days with my only relief coming when I was asleep. I found the remedy on this site and decided to give it a try, especially since the remedy for tonsilitis worked so well. I took a tbsp of ACV and the effect was immediate relief! The hiccups were gone upon ingestion! Amazing!

Vinegar worked for my hiccups! Had them for over 20 minutes - tried holding my breath and drinking water with no avail. Took one shot of organic ACV and they were gone. I'm amazed! Thanks!!

It's wonderful to know the amazing effects of Vinegar. One man 72 years old had constant hiccups for 2 days and more when he consulted me. I gave him this bit of advice to take 1 tsp of vinegar and his hiccups stopped instantly ... It's almost a month he has never had it again

The only thing that has ever cured my hiccups has been to take a swig of vinegar. It burns terribly all the way down but instantly that looming hiccup feeling dissipates.

For those with real trouble with hiccups, who can hold their breath until they turn blue while standing on their head drinking water only to resume hiccuping afterwards, I can't recommend the vinegar highly enough. Often I get them when I've eaten too much and drinking water or eating peanut butter seems to just make them worse. I was skeptical, but elated to discover that vinegar works.

Water and the Help of a Friend

A friend showed me this trick and I have never seen it fail. If some one has hiccups give them a large glass of water, six or seven hundred mls, put you hands over their ears firmly and tell them to drink and keep drinking until you say stop. Let them drink most of the water and then take your hands away. The hiccups will disappear. I get my husband to do this for me and it works every time. Makes a good party trick too.

I have a similar remedy for hiccups. It takes water and the help of a friend. Have the person with hiccups drink about 1/2 glass of water (4-6 oz.), breathing normally. While they are drinking, someone else must pull up their earlobes. Works every time. Even on babies. Just hold up their earlobes while they're drinking their bottle.

Weird....try some sugar on a teaspoon...This has worked for me for more than 20 years.

Holding breath. The drinking remedies are all related to holding breath because you HAVE to hold your breath as you drink.
