Cure for hickups?

This friday we had a huge farewell party for a friend. Another friend got quite drunk and had the alcohol induced hickups bothering him. Well, there's a cure for it. Had to show it to my friend.

It only works when you have drank too much alcohol, not for the normal kind of hickup.


When you rise your bloodsugar quickly, it resets your diaphragm and eases the hickups. So take a cube of sugar, or two. Put it in your mouth and just little bit of water. Or any other non-alcoholic drink. Important: Non-alcoholic. Let the sugar dissolve in your mouth with the tiny bit of sugar and the sugar goes quicker into your bloodstream.

This'll help a bit.

I don't think there's a cure for the normal hickup. The scaring, drinking water upside down, breathing into a paperbag... none of it seems to work. But for alcohol induced hickup, sugar helps.
