How to stop annoying hiccups in 30 seconds or less
Hiccups are sudden rhythmic movement, involuntary diaphragm which can last from minutes to hours. Hiccups are rarely serious and have no clear reason to happen. They occur when the vagus nerve, or one of its branches, extending from the brain to the abdomen, is irritated. Hiccups usually go away in a short period of time, but imagine being in a meeting or a class and, out of nowhere, starting with hiccups. You need to remove as soon as possible. Here are some proven methods to stop annoying hiccups in 30 seconds or less.
1. Hold your breath and put your fingers in your ears. The branches of the vagus nerve also reach into the auditory system, and creating pressure on the nerve endings there, the vagus nerve goes into action and the hiccups may stop immediately. Do not put your fingers too far into your ears.
2. Get your friend’s surprise, tickle, shock you or make you angry or afraid, suddenly. The key point here is that you should not be aware of. Doing this will distract and overwhelm the vagus nerve and the hiccups stop. Hooray!

Be sure to rinse the mouth after because lemon is acidic and harmful to the teeth in the long run.
7. A bit of peanut butter also helps to stop hiccups. The texture (softness and stickiness) helps relax the rhythm of breathing, like salt and sugar.
