How To Cure Hiccups: Stick Tongue Out4. STICK OUT YOUR TONGUE
You open your throat when you stick your tongue out as far as you can, which allows for easier breathing. This has proven to help stop the diaphragm spasms that cause the hiccups.

5. CHUG A GLASS OF WATER
The swallowing process (heh heh) can stop hiccups.

6. BREATH INTO A PAPER BAG
Breathing into a paper bag will increase the amount of carbon dioxide in your body. Since your body interprets that as a sign you’re suffocating, you reflexively take deeper breaths. Those deeper breaths may stop the diaphragm spasm.
