I hope you are aware that stammering is an obstacle that affects the verbal communication abilities of a significant proportion of the population within our community. Stammering is a communication disorder in which the normal flow of speech is broken by repetitions, prolongations, or abnormal stoppages (no sound or block) of sounds and syllables. A person who stammers may exhibit one of these or a combination of all these characteristics.
There may be unusual facial and body movements, associated with the efforts to speak.
As it is not a disease, so it cannot be treated through medicine.
There are number of sites on google.
I am not a physician, but I have seen that best results are obtained when you are child.
But still you can improve at older age.
Try to speak slowly & make a habit to speak slowly. Find out the words - where you stammer. Find out alternative words.
Continuously make your self aware that Stammering is not a disease
You take support from your family a ...more

In addition to what PANIWALA and ASHWIN had just said I would add alittle to it, its so that when you want to express yourself before unknown persons you like to express as if you are not devoid of any ability its so by virtue of excitement, so keep yourself calm and talk to others in a very slow pace and develop such a practice in a few days you would be able to do so, whereafter you would notice that your disorder is gradually overcome. I am sure of it.

Hi A Jani,
I advise you to be pleasant and practice the following autosuggestion sincerely to rid of your problem:
1." I am relaxed: I whole heartedly welcome the minor speech irregularity and I have no concerns about it.
2. "I know pretty well that many eminent intellectuals had speech disorders like stammer: As compared to theirs, mine is a non-issue.
3. "I am relaxed: I have no concerns about my speech: I welcome my style of communication: I have no concerns.
To practice auto suggestion, sit down in a comfortable posture, take long deep breathing, relax and repeat the sentences quoted.

Don't worry arun that is the first thing i can tell you.I myself do stammer.Remember if you think about what people in the whole world think then that's problem.Just relax,speak slowly and at times when you are having a huge trouble.STOP.Take a deep breath and start again.If the other person hangs up the phone tell him in your mind HAVE A NICE DAY.When out in the bus or asking for a ticket maybe you would have problems,keep a writing pad and a pen in the pocket.Write down and ask for whatever you want.Develope conifidence and see the world changing.All the best.
