Well I am 17 right now and I think I am still growing. I need to get a bigger pair of jeans every 3-4 months. I am around 5'8 or 5'9 right now.

I'm currently 18 and just under 6'4 (usually when people ask, I just say I'm 6'4) and as far as I am aware, I am still growing, ever so slowly, but still growing non the less.

you can grow up to age 21-23, so unless you're older than that you can't really determine whether you "stopped" or not.

I don't think I've gotten any taller since I was like 16/17 (I'm currently 21, pushin 22)

I keep holdin out hope though. Cuz many moons ago I was told that by the time I was done growing I'd be like 6'3", and when you're like 13 and haven't blown out your knee yet and still have those dreams of the NBA, that's pretty exciting. When you hit 21 and say, "Hey, I'm still (a generous) 5'9", it's a lil more depressing.

I rationalized it by saying that the whole smoking stunts your growth thing is sad but true and I smoked way too much.

I was still growing at 20. I grew from 5'5"-5'9" in 9th grade and it was an inch every year after that.
