  • Hold my head upside down and hold my breath at the same time for as long as I can. I only have to do this once and they're gone.

  • Get a paper bad and put it over your nose and mouth and breathe in and out. Hiccups are caused by lack of Carbon dioxide in the body so breathing it back in should help.

  • Go in the kitchen and take a drink of WARM water. It has to be warm water because it relaxes your diaphram muscle. It works everytime for me.

  • Do a shot of lime juice. A bartender gave it to my husband once when he had them and it worked.
