I am a compulsive liar and I don’t know how to stop


I lie about everything all the time like even the unnecessary things like what I had for breakfast and stuff like that and I don’t know how to stop.

All these lies keep me up and night because I can’t keep track of everything I’ve said and I feel like some people know but they choose not to say anything.

instead they just don’t tell me anything anymore or they just don’t think I’m reliable and I hate it and idk how to stop. Any advice???

Netizens’ comments

  1. You have to figure out WHY you lie.
  2. Where is the lying come from? Anxiety to answer quickly?
    What if after you did lie, you come clean and said, “oh wait, it was actually “x,” that I ate. That could be step 1.
    Also seeing a therapist would be a good start.
  3. You’ll definitely need to see a therapist. There’s loads of reasons why you do it. Could be from childhood trauma, defense mechanisms or a habit that developed but a professional will help you with the tools to break this cycle.
  4. They definitely know. Maybe not the extent, but yes, everyone knows
  5. People absolutely know, they just haven’t mentioned anything to you because like how do you start a conversation about that. Also go to therapy man, don’t lie, stuff like what you ate for breakfast is inconsequential but don’t be one of those people who lies about other people’s personal stuff.
  6. I just started being brutally honest with people instead. My mother is a compulsive liar, and I realized that I was doing it too when I was a teenager. I always lied to people when I was younger. It was always for attention. I just realized that I couldn’t deal with it anymore one day and just started confessing things to everyone close to me. I told them about all of the lies and just started being brutally honest about everything instead. People think that I’m an asshole now, but at least I can sleep at night knowing that I don’t have to keep up with all the lies anymore. It’s exhausting living that way. Best of luck to you.
  7. I have a cousin who is a compulsive liar. People who spend much time around her absolutely know. I am friendly to her but I wouldn’t believe her if she said the sky was blue. If you don’t like being this way you need to see a therapist. I don’t mean to be harsh, but you’re right, people will think you’re not reliable and they do find the lies obvious and just aren’t saying anything.
