I sometimes stall my car, as I have a new one and the biting point is so high.
Anyway, someone told me stalling damages my car, but all it does is force the engine to a stop...
Does constant stalling damage my petrol car?

No. Stalling the car will not damage your car , your car is designed to absorb the impact at least a hundred times.(Most of my family members learnt driving in my car and it has stalled half of its life and its working perfectly)
Stalling the car extremely frequently especially with load(passengers) can put additional stress on the transmission components but again its highly unlikely you will kill the car with stall.
Also stalling and starting the car frequently puts stress on your starter motor and the battery but those are the only things which can fail sooner than the car because of stalling but again , highly unlikely.
A point to note is that stalling can be extremely dangerous to you and your car when you are in the middle of the road, in traffic, you have the danger of another vehicle rear ending you and its very likely that it will happen since the other driver cannot counter the sudden decrease in your speed.
