Mosquito (I suspect not his real name) reports:
I also can do this and largely follow your steps (or technique) but I had never been able to explain them to anyone, it is such a weird thing. I’ve done this for a long time, since I’m a teenager. I need to sit quiet though and to concentrate on my respiration and it will stop after a few hiccups. I’m not at the stage where I just tell myself to stop and it will.
Don’t ask me how I found out that this worked on me (I think it can work on anyone) but whilst my other half gets really stressed when he starts with hiccups that can last *hours* I can get rid of it easily. I will bookmark this page so he can read your explanation!
