Have you ever had the hiccups [a spasmodic inhalation with closure of the glottis

accompanied by a peculiar sound][It is a series of expulsions of air that sound like "hic

up"] before? Do you have any good ways to stop hiccups?

You remind me of a joke that I've read before: 

A man goes into a drugstore and asks the pharmacist if he can give him something for the hiccups. The pharmacist promptly reaches out and slaps the man's face. 

"What did you do that for?" the man asks. 
"Well, you don't have the hiccups anymore, do you?" 
The man says, "No, but my wife out in the car still does!

Well, people usually drink water. However, I tried a new technique the last time I had the hiccups: by holding my breath, and it really worked.

Rofl! It's really funny! Hehehe~

Thanks for your humorous story, Vietnamese!

Hahaha, hmmm, next time I'll try your new technique! Thank you, sis nida!

In fact, it is my first time to hear this kind of disease (Hiccups). Pray God protect YOU!

I advice you of having a cup of tea mixed with one piece of Lemon in the morning. This is a Physiotherapy Medicine.Moreover, try to separate yourdelf of those Iced-water or drinks. And that's it!

Thanks I am Vietnamese, for sharing that lovely joke. It seems that it is you who worte or made it!

Mickey, my friend actually did it when I had the hiccups and unluckily, I was sitting in front of her at that time. I have learned about a folk remedy of hiccups like an oral message is: when you have the hiccups you need to drink 7 sips of water if you are men. You need to drink 9 sips of water if you're women. 

Oi Naseh, I read it from a joke book but unfortunately, I myself became a victim after sharing it with my friends. 

Thanks for your good advice, Naseh! Giggling~ [I just hiccup sometimes, or seldom]

Hahaha, funny you~

Hi Mickey ;)

All I can do to stop it is drinking water. But 9 sips a not enough for me :D .....

How about 9 cans of water or 9 cans of beer, Charos :PPP

It depends on the volume of those cans, I am Vietnamese  ;) ;) ;)
