A buddy of mine was in line with his brother at a grocery store a while back, and his brother got a violent attack of the hiccups... they just kept coming and he couldn't stop them. An older Asian man standing in line behind them noticed and asked the brother to reach out his right hand. He did, and the man rubbed the bottom joint of his little finger for a few seconds, only applying a bit of pressure. The hiccups immediately stopped. When my buddy told me the story, I figured his brother was just caught off-guard by the strange situation and his hiccups stopped for that reason. But the next time I got the hiccups, I tried the same thing and it worked. Since then, I've told quite a few friends when they had hiccups and it worked for them as well. So I'm spreading the good news for anyone who might need it! Just take the thumb and index finger on your left hand and gently squeeze the bottom joint of the little finger on your right hand while rubbing in a circular motion. It should only take a few seconds to work!
