OK, . Whats your cure? We drink pickle juice and it works! Dill.
A couple of shots of Bacardi 151 has always worked for me. At least I think it has!
raw sugar. Works every time.
I never heard of the raw sugar trick before. White or brown? And I'd rather keep the hicupps than drink raw pickle juice. I always seem to get the hicupps when I get drink about 20 beers and down a large pizza. Usually drinking a few more beers real quick will make mine go away.
I second the sugar technique!! 1 packet or about a tablespoon. Works every time for me.
white sugar, two tablespoons or three packets. Never fails for me. If two doesn't do it take two more. Slowly let it melt in your mouth and swallow in gulps.
I never get more than 1 or 2 hickups at a time. Usually right after taking a drink of cold pop. My older brother always told me that drinking pickle juice will put hair on your *****!
For me, hiccups are an indication of dehydration. Thats why the picle juice makes sense. Pickle juice is a common rememdy for cramps, also a result of dehhydration. I have never heard of the alcohol or sugar remedies. Generally a glass of water or two works. I get the hiccups when I drink alcohol without some water to offset the dehydration characteristics of the alchy. My wife laughs at me. What a help!
Take one relatively large glass of water, place a clean dish towel over the glass, and drink the entire glass of water through the dish towel without stopping. This one works every time for me.
