My grandma would take a spoonful of sugar, put a drop of peppermint flavoring (peppermint oil?) from a very small bottle probably for candy making and have us suck on the sugar. It always worked. Pharmacies often have the peppermint oil near or behind the Rx counter.
As said already, holding your breath always works. But sometimes just holding your breath won't do good. In that case, take a clean plastic cover. Cover your mouth with the plastic cover so that no air can go in or out. Breathe through your mouth only, inside the cover. Continue this until you are free from hiccups. The thing here is to intake some amount of air that we exhaled. Both the methods are basically same, but the 2nd is better, because it makes us to inhale more air that we exhaled, and i think that's the reason for working of this method.
The way i do is is i lay on the floor with my feet an calfs up on a chair of something that will lift up your legs so that your knees are at a 90 degree angle and just lay there for a while and after about a min. they will go away(My 2nd grade teacher tought my this and somehow i still remember! :P )
Alright here my shire fire way to get rid of hiccups. First tack a deep breath let it out slowly. Then without any breath in between tack another deep breath and hold for 15 seconds. Then without any breath in between tack another deep breath and hold for as long as you can. Let out each breath slowly and then tack the next breath straight after the last. The idea is to confuse the muscle under the lungs long enough for it to stop contracting causing the hiccups to stop. Good luck!
Get a mouth full of water into your mouth,go into your bedroom go upside down (You would probably do this by leaning on your bedside)And swallow the water!Easy peesy lemon squeezing :3 (Im such a dork!)
Those suggestions won't work if the hiccup reflex has become chronic. The specific remedy is Homeopathic Nux vomica - ideally in a 30C potency taken every ten minutes. Your local Homeopath will have supplies, as do several speciality stores. If that doesn't fix it, the Homeopath will have to repertorise a personal remedy for you - Homeopathic Cyclamen or Mag Phos are very effective, too.
I have 5 ways to get rid of hiccups 1. try scarring a person 2. make a loud sound 3. holding your breath as long as possible 4. drinking a lot of water 5. eat a lot and fast CAUTION this number 5. question is very dangerous so try the easiers one instead THANK YOU FOR LIKING.
Trust me this will work just eat a spoon filled with peanut butter if you ask how it worked it's because there's a bubble stuck in your esophagus and the peanut butter is thick so it will go right through it and your welcome

1. Take two deep inhales, and on the second inhale hold it. 2. Immediately take 2-3 sips of a glass of water. 3. When done, release breath. Hiccups are gone. (Works for me every time.) * Repeat IF necessary *Hint/Key: Burps are the cure.
Quite simply, you need to think about how you are breathing. When you inhale, expand your chest, when you exhale draw your chest in. It will take at least a minute of time to alleviate the hiccups, but it works every time. I learned this about 28 years ago while I was an EMT on an ambulance, the paramedic who taught me this I am indebted to!!! This resolution is especially important when you have a patient who probably should not take anything by mouth due to the severity of their injuries and also can be done in any position, even while entrapped/crushed in a vehicle. It was used countless times in my presence at a scene or as we were driving to the hospital. It also served as a way to calm a patient by getting their mind off of their injuries. Then we would do this for many minutes so we could deal with their wounds, get them out of their entrapment, etc.
