    Um, 176 for a 19 year male isn't exactly short now? It's pretty much in the average. I'm 19 and 177.

    To answer your question, each person as an individual is different. Some stop growing at 17, some 18 but generally males can grow up to about the age of 21.

    Average is 180. When I was 6 and first day of school I was 90 cm. All up to now I always been the shortest.

    Considering taking hormone pills or something to grow more.

    Some men don't finish growing until their mid twenties.

    Stop drinking caffeine, booze, and/or smoking and you have a chance.

    I dont drink caffeine/alcohol but I cant survive without 7+ cigarettes a day. Tried everything to quit but no good. Does nicotine really impact height that much?

    Yeah pretty much the same here exept when I turned 16 I shot from 150 to 170. And it stayed there for 2 years. Gained 5 cm in 1 year from 18-19

    Let's say yes so you'll stop poisoning yourself with cigarettes.
