Here is another one of my classic puzzles (1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6).

Me, I am what you do when you don't want to do something,

My anagram is noble,

My other anagram is necessary for human life,

My homophone is not getting any bigger,

My homophone's anagram is proved false.

It is:

Groan

Me, I am what you do when you don't want to do something,

A groan is the sound you make when you don't want to do something

My anagram is noble,

The anagram is 'Argon' a noble gas

My other anagram is necessary for life,

This anagram is 'organ', which are definitely necessary for life!

My homophone is not getting any bigger,

'Groan' sounds like 'grown', which indicates something has finished growing

My homophone's anagram is proved false.

The anagram of 'grown' is 'wrong' which means proved false

    $\begingroup$ The third definition ("necessary for life") is not accurate. Single cell creatures can live without it wery well. $\endgroup$ – Lerin Sonberg Feb 1 at 13:22
