Bill W. reincarnated on Etsy?

Is this the next big spiritual movement?

  • There is a sucker born every minute I guess. I knew people in the roomz who did therapy by thought. no shit, the therapist would set aside time to “think about them” fucking. insane.

  • Martha

    Just like the palm reader during the 1980s who said he could read your palm over the phone.

  • I like the comment:

    “It will consist of step one (which should see you cured ) and then step two (if you are a particularly difficult case to cure)”

    Wow – 12 Steps Condensed.

    LOL, this is absolutely too funny. I wonder how many people will actually go for that rip off!!!

  • I sent it to 🙂 Maybe they’ll put it up.

    I first saw this headline and thought it said “Bill W hooked on ecstasy.” I knew that was wrong. Ecstasy wasn’t invented back then. He just did booze, smokes and LSD. And he was only hooked on two of them.

    Perhaps it requires a close look at your part in causing the hiccups and making amends to your diaphragm….

  • Rick045

    This is for low-bottom hiccupers only. Those who aren’t sure should try some controlled hiccuping before surrendering their fifty bucks…

  • I will only make amends to my diaphragm “wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.” I did a “a searching and fearless moral inventory of ” the situation and decided that it may hurt my esophagus. I then made a list of all of my body parts I “had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.” I realized that I had also hurt my lungs and stomach lining. Because of this I “had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps” and decided I need major help. I joined AA where I can drink coffee, smoke cigarettes and continually talk about my ordeal with other people doing the same thing. I can’t wait for “the miracle to happen.” I know it will happen as long as I stay in AA, because my sponsor told me it will.

    Step one – Shoot yourself in the head. You will not hiccup anymore.

    Okay…here it is for free. Taking a spoonful of sugar will stop the hiccups. It has something scientific to do with sugar relaxing the diaphragm. Anyway, it works 100% of the time for me. There must be something wrong with you if it doesn’t work for you.

  • Lucy

    MA – I like your reading of the headline.” Bill W, Hooked on Ecstacy”, with a follow up article, ” Sells Shit on Regretsy”

  • I was going to try the “Taking a spoonful of sugar will stop the hiccups” cure, but my sponsor at Hiccups Anonymous talked to my Over Eaters Anonymous sponsor and they both agreed that I need a Spiritual solution.

    JR, you just need the SECRET to curing your hiccups…imagine they will go away, focus all your attention on them going away and the exact cure will manifest itself in front of your very eyes. Then you will be invited to be on the Oprah Winfrey show.

  • I’ve always used the spoonful of sugar thing too! And it’s always worked.

  • There is a famous “Hiccup” Girl in 2007 who tried all of the normal remedies and even the not so normal ones and gained National Attention:,2933,280752,00.html

    She eventually ended up being tried for murder in 2010:

  • JRH, She must have had Real Hiccups. You people are probably just heavy hiccuppers, and that’s fine. If sugar works for you, then more power to you.

    I saw a GMA interview with her mom who defends her daughter by saying the same unknown (possible tourettes syndrome) DISEASE that caused her daughter to have hiccups probably also caused her to “hang with the wrong crowd” and that her daughter never would have done this had she not had so much media attention regarding her hiccups. Say What?

  • OK – I think I have a good handle on this now. I found the blog below that was made just for her with different remedies. They go through everything from Hypnotherapy and Chiropractic adjustment, to just slapping them out of her.

    I think i will just try all of them to see which one works the best. They did forget to mention an exorcist, so I’m searching Craigs List for one right now.

  • Be careful over there. I tangled with some ugly-hearted haters over there last night. You’ll recognize them because they are carrying their asses around in their hands today.

  • I’m being careful. I use the old “blend in” routine. I speak softly and carry a “Big Book” …… oops…. I mean stick.

  • Vera

    My hiccups are out in the parking lot doing push-ups.

  • Vera wins this thread.

  • Well as a good Stepper in Hiccup Anonymous (HA) I have learned from a friend in AA that I should go global. I really believe in the cause and there is a Hiccuper in London that needs to be 12 Stepped and another one in Scotland who needs me to help with his 5th Step, so I’m off in a private jet that one of our members at HA has graciously donated for the cause (What a guy).

    I keep getting emails from this girl in Thailand that wants me to help her with her 13th Step, but I think I’ll pass.
