    перестань
    прекрати
    хватит

    For example:
    Перестань ковырять в носу. - Stop picking your nose.

    "перестань" and "прекрати" are pretty much the same and mean "stop", "хватит" literally means "enough(of)'"

    What about стоп?

    All the stop signs in Odessa said стоп.


    Also Mirage sings the following:
    Я кричу тебе "Останься!"
    Какая разница, умереть богатым или бедным?

    Какой толк от богатства если ты не счастлив.

    Перестать means to stop doing something.
    Останавливать/остановить means to stop a person or thing.

    "Стоп!" is similar to the order "стоять!"

    Though the former is more colloquial and the latter sometimes is rude.

    'Booger' is a slang. I cannot think of any proper slangy equivalent in Russian.

    I always thought that booger meant "snot of solid consistancy" wheras snot meant "snot of fluid or slimy consistancy"

    They are both listed as slang in Random House's dictionary, though I've never heard the usage of "nasal mucus"

    Final curiosity, would "перестань съешьте в козявка!" translate correctly to "stop eating your booger!"?
