Yes, I stutter. Most people start it when they are small, at the age of 2 to 5, but I started later, when I was a teenager. I start to find it a bit anoyying, what can I do to stop it?

Thank you for the answer, yes I have already visited the doctor, but she seems to be thinking that it's alright to stutter, and all she says is that I have to read books out aloud (she says that helps). But I haven't told her that I start to stutter more and more, but I'll see. Thanks for your answer.
If you are unhappy with the doctor's diagnosis, you may want to seek a second opinion. I agree that stuttering is usually trigger by something. If there was a traumatic event, you may want to seek psychological counseling to deal with the underlying cause of the stutter. If you don't know why the stuttering is occurring, you may want to seek out a speech therapist. They can work with on the physical symptom itself. You may want to seek a second opinion just be sure there isn't an underlying medical cause. Regardless of the reason for the stutter, a speech therapist should be able to help you.
