|Breathe in and push down|
Take a deep breath and push your stomach down as though you were going to have a bowel movement. This action stimulates the vagus nerve which connects the diagphram to the brain.
Hiccups occur most often when you eat too fast, and especially when you're eating meat.
Try and drink a non-carbonated liquid as soon after the hiccup as possible.
|Rub your eyes|
Rubbing your eyes very hard stimulates the vagus nerve again.
A teaspoon or tablespoon of sugar swallowed dry seems to help some people.
|Drink upside down|
Bend over and drink water from the opposite side of a glass.
|Pull up your knees|
Try pulling your knees up to your chest and compressing it.
|Hold your breath|
Try and hold your breath for as long as you can.
