I am 21 years old and I have had a stammer since I was about 8. I will tell you right now that there is no cure. It's something that you have to live with.
The most important thing you must realise, is that you should never let your stammer get in the way of what you want to do with your life. Don't let it stop you. You should do whatever you want and push yourself in spite of it, and people will admire you for it, not criticise you. And the ones who are critical, are ignorant anyway.
I went on the Starfish course a couple of years ago and it really helped me. I am by no means cured of my stammer but I now have the confidence to not let it hold me back like it once did.
Good luck, keep smiling and you'll succeed in whatever you want to do x
