Hiccups when smoking

I did a search and didnt find anything. Does anyone else get the hiccups when smoking? istart hiccuping at the 2nd or 3rd drag in of a cigarette and then every drag after that is accompanied by a hiccup. Holding my breath for a half a minute &releasing stops it for a few drags but then it just starts up again!
Nobody else experience this?

Sickpeache added 4 Minutes and 47 Seconds later...

Sorry if supposed to use SWIM. Swim thought because smoking tobacco was a legal activity she was not self incriminating. Swim cant edit so if mods feel the need to edit or delete swims post, please do.

Re: Hiccups when smoking

'Swim' must be used all the time regardless of a substance being illegal or not.

Swim knows exactly what Swiy is going through. Swim more often than not gets the Hiccups when smoking and it can really drive him up the wall. It takes away any enjoyment Swim gets from smoking.
Swim finds this happens to him more often if he has taken anything else like Kratom or Alcohol.

The hiccups only happen when Swim is inhaling and as soon as Swim stops smoking the Hiccups stop too.

When Swim gets the hiccups any other time he is usually able to regulate his breathing to stop them but this does not seem to work here. Swim also notices that this happens more often when Swim smokes outside, he often wonders if the cold weather has anything to do with it?

Re: Hiccups when smoking

Swim used to experience similar bouts of hiccups when smoking in a room with a ceiling fan on, which seemed to correlate with Swims hiccups starting. Swim was intrigued by this and when looking in to the causes of hiccups he found that the most common factor in hiccups is a sharp intake of cold or hot air. Swim will quote a small explanation:

Quote:
When a person eats or drinks something that is very cold or hot it can cause the diaphragm to contract or spasm. Eating spicy foods can even trigger the diaphragm to contract. A lot of people will get hiccups when they are eating and talking same time because they are swallowing air. For some unknown reason alcoholic beverages can trigger the diaphragm to spasm also. Believe it or not, the simple act of taking a cold shower or leaving a room that is too hot or too cold suddenly can be what causes hiccups. The key element here is that the person has a sudden intake of air, either hot or cold. Even people who get overly excited or who are under stress can get hiccups because of the exaggerated way they begin to breathe.
(Source:wwx.ihealthdirectory.com/what-causes-hiccups/)

Made sense to Swim when he read it and matched up with his experience of changes in air temperature caused by his ceiling fan giving him hiccups whilst smoking.

Re: Hiccups when smoking

The hiccuping is, from what SWIM understands, caused by a surge of dopamine in your brain. As we all know, cigarettes increase dopamine. There isn't a real scientific way to stop or prevent hiccups.

Re: Hiccups when smoking

SWIM's boyfriend gets hiccups a lot but she's noticed that it seems to be after taking heroin. It could be related to smoking though, cos he is a very light smoker usually (no more than 5 a day and sometimes just 1 or 2), but when he takes heroin his cigarette intake increases exponentially and he could smoke as many as 30 or 40 cigarettes. SWIM doesn't know what actually causes his hiccuping: she's assumed it was the heroin as odd as that sounds but perhaps it has more to do with the cigarette smoking which accompanies the heroin - SWIM had never thought of that before(!)

Btw, a friend recently told SWIM about an effective remedy for hiccups and as SWIM was hiccuping at the time he made her try out this remedy to prove it's efficacy to her: and it did work! Next time SWIY has hiccups try drinking just a small amount (a cap-full will do) of vinegar - it should instantly rid SWIY of the offending hiccups - tastes absolutely rank mind you, but it does seem to work!
Strange though, don't you think? That for all science has discovered and created, they have still not come out with an effective and proven cure for hiccups!

Btw - another aside - did anyone see the documentary on tv the other week called "The boy who couldn't stop hiccuping"? It made for jaw-dropping viewing, it really did. This twenty-something lad had permanent hiccups and had been suffering with them for 6 years. Imagine that - 6 years of hiccuping - it would drive a person insane. Well, this poor lad had undergone all kinds of treatment and testing on the NHS in England but nothing was done that helped him. Then he was given the opportunity to go to Japan and have tests done over there. I think there was some kind of arrangement that he would go on some chat-shows whilst there - so a production company was covering the costs and he had a tv crew following him around whilst he was in Japan. Anyway, within 2 days of being in Japan the doctors there had found something which 6 years worth of testing by NHS doctors had failed to uncover: he had a brain tumour. Yep, it turns out that prolonged hiccuping is a possible symptom of having a brain tumour. Fortunately this lad didn't have a cancerous one and back in England he underwent successive brain surgery to remove it and sure enough the hiccups stopped. Still, this was a fascinating story and SWIM thought this young man was truly amazing to have endured 6 years of hicups: it sounds so silly, but SWIM's had them for 6 minutes and they've driven her crazy, just imagine what 6 years worth must be like!
