Charlie Succeeds!

Reader Charlie Wrote Reports Success:

That’s cool. I attempted what you were explaining; something like clenching my esophagus, while inhaling/exhaling a few times, and my hiccups immediately stopped. First try.

This reminds me of my recently deceased friend who had convinced himself that everything, Everything was merely an instantiation of will/desire/perception. He had also learned to stop his hiccups at will, but concluded that it was merely is decision to stop which ceased the spasm. I had tried unsuccessfully to simply tell myself to stop for a few years. Out of curiously I Google’d “hiccup at will” which brought me to this page. After reading your post I attempted your method and ceased my hiccups instantaneously. I have nothing to say but, interesting.
