sorry about the hiccups.
excessive stomach acid in your stomach can cause burping and hiccups.
you may need to change your diet to avoid foods which worsens stomach acid, spicy foods, fried foods, oily foods, alcohol, tomato sauces,
you may benefit from stomach acid reducing medications like maalox, mylanta, zantac or prilosec
holding your breath will not become an addiction.
if it helps you relax and stops your hiccups, it is ok
