I can vouch for the fact that hiccups do not neet alcohol to exist. I get hiccups quite often and I haven’t touched a drop in over five years lol. So, this is for steve.
1 large glass of water, preferably room temp for easy chugging.
1 straw if alone
If you have an assistant, as all of us disabled folk have a personal assistant, right? *wink* Have your assistant stand behind you with palms cupped around your ears. Have them press palms tightly to create suction. Take a deep breath. Chug all the water. Have assistant only release ears after you are done drinking and take a breath.
If alone, cup your own ears and chug water with a straw. It works best if you have a high counter or table so you’re not bending over too far. This can also be done in bed with a water bottle by balancing bottle between knees and raising legs to tip water into mouth. It’s likely you will spill using this technique.
I only post this because I’ve done all of the above. When mom had cancer the first time, she had hiccups in the hospital and a nurse showed her that trick.
Sometimes it takes two times to work, but it really works. 🙂
