Drinking carbonated drinks such as Coke or Pepsi has worked every time for me.

Eating ice cream really works!

I too am surprised that by pulling my tongue my hiccups went away.

I have chronic hiccups. Last month I had an episode lasting a week, 10 hours plus per day. I ended that with a milk shake. Friday night they started again. They continued through to Sunday night. I stopped them with a milk shake. They restarted about 2:00 am Monday. I again stopped them with ice cream. The cold applied to get that severe chilling at the back of the mouth and the smoothness of the shake or ice cream seem to be the factor to the success of this home remedy.

I had the hiccups for over an hour and after reading the info on holding your breath{which was one minute for me} it did the trick,thank God.

I take a glass of really ice cold water and let it slide down the back of my throat and tongue really slow and repeat over and over, but the hiccupping usual stops within a few swallows.

I was looking for a way to stop my hiccups and thought I would try pulling my tongue. I just couldn't believe it when they stopped instantly. Cool.
