Your chewing too much; chew and park.

I figured as much, thanks. But why exactly does the gum give you hiccups?

it does for me too! Your stomach is trying to reject the nicotine. Try swallowing some chew-juice and you get the same effect.

Not sure about the hiccups, but I used a drug called Chantix and I've been quit for six months. It didn't make sense to me to use nicotine to quit nicotine.

haha that's an interesting way to stop them. Too bad mine only occur while chewing the gum

I don’t smoke but this company made a herbal product that was designed to take the urge of smoking away while not able to smoke, some people have used them to stop smoking also a side effect is stress reduction. It’s a like a Werthers candy. I bought some for my friends to try as a way to evaluate the company for an investment. Two tried it and they liked the taste and neither one smokes anymore.
Also neither one of them got the hic ups :)
