In brief: Short-tempered
Presumably you're still growing, in height.
Consumption among teens has been increasing for yrs. No, it will not stunt your growth. Caffeine, chemical quickly crosses the blood brain barrier, stimulates nerves, increase pulse, bp, stimulate mind activity, maintain awakeness (and cause sleep probs), and if drink too much, will cause withdrawal sx when stopped. I love joe 2 & 2 cups/day. Moderation.
