What causes hiccups and how do I stop them?

lately for the past week or so I've been having episodes of non stop hiccups. I take a deep breath and it goes away but it comes back quickly. I have no idea what causes hiccups or how to stop them. thanks for helping

The most common causes for short-term hiccups are eating too much, drinking carbonated beverages or too much alcohol, sudden temperature changes and excitement or emotional stress. Most cases of hiccups just go away on their own without any medical treatment but there are drugs that are used such as chlorpromazine,metoclopramide and baclofen. You should check with your doctor, and you can get more information here http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/hiccups/DS00975/DSECTION=treatments-and-drugs.
