Back where I come from, when you’re having the hiccups people tell you (jokingly) that you’re growing taller. Lol. It would be awesome if it was true, but we know it’s not and hiccups are just plain annoying. What’s the best and most effective way to get rid of them??

One of my friends taught me a trick – to hold my breath for as long as I can, and then breath out.

Yup, I do the holding breath thing, too. It helps your diaphragm to relax. Spasms in this muscle are what cause hiccups.

I’ve heard that your hiccups will disappear if you have a sudden scare – pretty sure there’s no scientific proof out there that this works…but have a friend sneak up on you and try watching a scary clip on youtube! Haha. I’ve tried the “holding your breath” technique as well, and I think it helps if you hold your breath and swallow down multiple times.
