    I've tried everything I know to do and they won't go away. Someone help! These are the kind that hurt.

    So did you make yourself throw up?

    No, but while researching online, I found out that marijuana supposedly helps. Where the hell can I get bud at 1:30 a.m. in the midwest?

    Take a glass of water, fill it 3/4 of the way full.

    Place it on the kitchen counter.

    Bend over and drink out of the glass as much as you can from the far side without picking it up.

    I've seen this work but never actually tried it.

    You are having hiccups because you are out of your regular breathing pattern. It is very random and there is no know cure but I have always found that if I hold my breath a few times it usually clears quickly.

    Yeah, that didn't work. I tried. I even tried swallowing (my air.. nothing else.. jerks. :) )

    Usually, holding my breath to a count of 10 does the trick.

    Problem solved. I took a big breath, swallowed it, and then pushed out on my stomach and chest as much as possible. Put enough pressure on the diaphragm to flip it back to its correct position.

    Dear Penthouse, I never thought this would happen to me, but...

    I've always been able to get rid of them by holding my breath and continually taking in more air. Then, when I can't take it any more, I take the biggest gulp of water I can.
