    I love cooking with wine.
    Sometimes I even put it in the food.

    I never saw them.

    What I do for hiccups that works every time is to pour about 8 to 10 oz.
    of room temp water and sip it quickly down in small sips while holding
    my breath.

    That's my method! Knock on wood I rarely get the hiccups, they
    are so annoying. And I know once I get them, I'll keep getting
    them for the next few days.

    That should be the worst of my troubles, right?

    Right now I'm more concerned with when I'm going to make your
    tomato pie. I did clean out my pantry cabinet and found some
    canned chiles and thought It's been a long time since I made some
    tortilla soup.

    Even though I'm in the air conditioning, hot soup doesn't appeal in
    the summertime.

    The pie is well worth it...but please ensure well drained tomato slices. I can't state this strongly
    enough. Or there will be weepage/ excessive moisture in the filling. Is weepage a word?

    It's either that or weepamundo, I forget. I will make sure to drain
    the tomatoes.

    When I use the water method, I drink the whole thing
    in one continuous gulp. And I can feel a change
    if it is successful. If it were possible for your
    throat to become dizzy for a moment, that's the best
    description I can give of this feeling.

    However, for more persistent hiccups, the best
    solution I've found is breathing in and out of
    a plastic bag, to the point where you think you
    just can't do another breath that way. In which
    case, I save the last inflation of the bag and
    breathe normally long enough to recover. If the
    hiccups are not gone, I resume using the gas
    from the last inflation of the bag.

    I've read that hospitals use carbon dioxide gas
    as a treatment for difficult cases of hiccups.
    That's essentially what this does.

    Sounds interesting...

    To date, the water method has not failed me but I'll keep the bag thing
    in mind if it ever does.

    Fortunately, I don't suffer from hiccups that often!

    I've never seen or heard of that being used. We usually use Thorazine.

    Low-dose chlorpromazine is effective against hiccups,
    but if I'm not mistaken, baclophen is considered the
    current best practice, with regard to pharmacotherapy.

    Baclofen. And it isn't so commonly used either. But it makes some sense.

    I should have mentioned that if you try this,
    you should make sure you will be safe if you
    lose consciousness. It's never happened to me,
    but if you black out, you don't want to a) fall
    and hit something, or b) blackout with the bag
    over your face obstructing breathing.

    With regard to a), don't do it sitting in a chair.
    Do it on the floor or sitting in the middle of
    a bed.

    With regard to b), it's an unlikely hazard and
    you'll have a short period of time as the black
    out begins to snatch the bag away from your face.
    Knowing of the hazard will prepare you for the
    proper response at the onset of blackout.

    Put a pencil in a glass of water and drink. No need to hold your
    breath or stand on your head and squawk like a chicken. Hasn't failed

    If you use a paper bag instead of a plastic bag, that should reduce the
    risk of suffocation.

    I'll stick to the water method as long as it continues to work. <g>
