Well, it's been a festive horror show, but at least I've learned through trial by alcoholic combat how one can actually cure the hiccoughs (which recent case of, and my wife leaving me, did literally make me consider hurling myself headlong flaming out the window looking onto the airwell). All of these really work: 1) hyperventilation (breathing in wildly too much); 2) drinking as much water as one can as fast as one can; 3) sicking oneself up, which I personally recommend as the only sure-fire trick. But alternate if you have constantly-recurring hiccoughs. One can't use one method all the time. It hurts too much.
