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.

Okay, let's say now that a doughnut might have the equivalent of a spoonful of sugar... Now my fake-excuse of "Doughnuts are my medicine" becomes real!!! Medicine against hiccups! hooray! ^_^

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.
