I believe that's a violation of my parole.   ;)

Please.  Been over an hour.

If the peanut butter doesn't work:

The 30 second cure

Step 1: Start by inhaling through your mouth until your lungs feel full (when it feels like you cannot inhale any more.... your lungs will basically stop taking in air).

Step 2: Swallow.  You are not really swallowing anything but it seems that without this act, it doesnt work.  Do not let any air out.

Step 3: Now inhale some more until your lungs feel full again.  You may not be able to inhale a lot, but do get some more air in.  It will start to get difficult to do this as you go, but keep trying.  You obviously cant suck in as much air as you did initially, but just a little will do (think of it as taking a sip of air but directly into your lungs).

Step 4: Swallow again.  This too will start to get difficult as you go.  Do not let any air out.

Step 5: Repeat steps 3 and 4 (inhale and swallow) until you cannot swallow again.  While it seems you can almost always suck in just a little more air, it is actually the swallowing that gets to be impossible.  When you feel like you cannot swallow again, swallow again anyway.  It will be hard to do, your face will probably turn red, and you may make squeaking sounds.  But you CAN swallow one last time.  By this time, your lungs should also be quite full and it should be difficult to get much more air in as well.  While you should try not to let any air out, if you have really repeated steps 3 and 4 as many times as you can, you probably will end up letting a little air out before you can take that last swallow.  If you find that air keeps escaping out of your nose even early in the process, try squeezing it shut with your fingers.

Step 6: Exhale.

Good luck!

Peanut butter worked!!!!

That was my 3rd bout of hiccups today; this time over an hour.

Thanks guys.  Keeping those cures at the ready.


I used to drink a glass of water from the other end of the glass and that would always work.  Not this time. 

Junior: Thank you.  Thank you.  Thank you.  For real.

I'm glad I could help. For those who want to use this in the future, make sure you use a giant spoon and overflow it. It's all about taking time to swallow the peanut butter.

Yes - and also not thinking about what you are doing.

"New" cures work best for me because I'm not thinking about the whole "your diaphragm is spasming" thing.  Drinking out of the opposite side of the glass used to be my go-to cure.  Now it's peanut butter.

I cannot tell you how miserable I was.  Thanks again, Junior.

I had a friend swear by drinking water through a napkin.
