How to cure the Hiccups Once and for all Guaranteed

Okay, we've all had the hiccups. They're obnoxious, they're annoying, sometimes they are painful. There are so many theories on what causes the hiccups, but let's face it. You're here because you want to get rid of them because you're at your wits end.

Believe me when I say I've tried everything under the sky to cure the hiccups, but it wasn't until I met my wife that I have discovered the only sure fire way to get rid of those friggin hiccups once and for all.

Forget breathing in a bag, getting scared, holding your breath, drinking water upside down, or yodeling naked with hard-boiled eggs under your arm pits. Simply follow these easy instructions while you read them.

First Step to getting rid of the hiccups:

Start breathing in slowly. Keep breathing in until you can't anymore. Once you're convinced you can't breath in any more BREATHE IN AGAIN! You've done it? Okay, seriously, breath in again. You can do it, just force it.

Step 2 of the hiccups cure:

Okay, now hold it there until the count of 5.

Step 3 for getting rid of the hiccups:

Start breathing out SLOWLY through your mouth only. Breathe out until you can't do it any more. Now, once you're convinced that you cannot breathe out any more BREATHE OUT AGAIN! You can do it. Force it. There is a reason the Heimlich maneuver works! Breathe out 2 more times even though you don't think you can.

Congratulations, your hiccups are gone!

This is a fail-safe 100% guaranteed way to get rid of your hiccups. Enjoy living normal life again!

      I do the same thing, breathing in until I can't anymore, then hold it until I feel I'll explode and breath out through my mouth and it's always worked for me. I'll try breathing out slower next time!
