Hello do the following things obstruct your growth?
A simple yes or now could be sufficient

1. Smoking tabaco / marihuana
2. Drinking alcohol
3. Masturbating
4. Not sleeping alot
5. Body building

Re: Growth

IMO, 3 and 5 would be no.

1,2 and 4 I think could depending on age factor, it your into adulthood you have reached your maxium in height. If you are younger, I do believe it could factor into it, tobacco, alcohol, will deplete some minerals essential to growing in your body, lack of sleep, helps promote wellness, stress would ensue it your living a busy, 18 hr day life, you need rest to let the body restore its immune system.

Re: Growth

I don't think that any of them could affect your growth in any meaningful way, unless you go seriously overboard with them. Smoking a lot of tobacco can retard growth in early adolescence, and I would guess that pot could too. Pot can definitely affect brain development as can alcohol.

I am sure that masturbating does not affect your growth. Bodybuilding and not sleeping a lot wouldn't affect your growth unless you took them to an extreme.
