Place your cucumbers in a bowl and sprinkle with salt. Allow to sit in the salt to draw out some of their moisture.
On the stovetop in a small saucepan, combine the vinegar and water. Add in the required amount of salt and contents of spice packet. Add in chilies here if you desire heat in your cucumbers. Bring to a boil. Turn off heat and let sit for a few minutes.
