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

Press your lower lip thrusting into your mouth holding with upper teeth.  It will stop.  I have read it in a book of common remedies.

In my country, everybody often hold the breath and drink water according to gender. I will explain to this point for you clearly: You will drink nine sips of water if you are female. And you drink seven sips of water if you are male. Remembering to hold your breath when drinking water.
