    1. Take a gulp of water in your mouth but don't swallow it. While standing, bend at the waist and hang down to touch your toes. While upside down, swallow the gulp of water. Repeat every minute until hiccups cease.

    2. Take a spoon full of sugar or try sucking on a piece of hard candy such as a jolly rancher. This almost always works for me.

    3. Suck in a huge breath of air and hold it as long as you can. When you can't hold it in anymore let it all the way out pushing out every ounce of air in your lungs and hold it as long as possible. Pretend you are deflating a balloon. When you can no longer hold that, take a huge breath in again and repeat this process until hiccups cease.

    A solution involving sugar placed on or under the tongue was cited in the December 23, 1971 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine.
