I have lied with such detail that it has risen to a point that I have become my own worst enemy. I have lied with such ease that I have become fluent in telling stories. I am a liar, lying has become an autonomous part of my character and how many people perceive me. I have lost or tarnished many relationships as a result of this problem, relationships that could have been fruitful had I not had this problem. I totally desire to change this aspect of my being, to remove it totally. It is so unhealthy to well-being. I desire a domain of help that will assist me in being and living a life of honesty. I know I can do it, and I want to do it. Help me please!
I have read a few of the posts. I unfortunately could identify with many of the spouses who are in relationships with a compulsive liar. I am that husband, friend, colleague who proved to you that I am untrustworthy, whose dialogue must always be second guest. Yet, I am also the one who in spite of this condition, has the potential to change, wants to change, and more importantly is loved by you. I am grateful that you can see the solid parts of me that are good, sincere, and decent. Please hold the mirror up for me, with compassion, and steadfastness, so we may see together where lays the root to this problem.

They have ranged from little ones,such as if he ate dinner to huge lies such as him dyning he has cheating on me 4 times. He has now been caught lying about going out and drinking and then taking a woman home from the bar,telling her that he is seperated and getting her number. ( he also has recently told me he thinks he has a drinking problem)We have been through a year of marriage consuling and now that i think about it i have never really brought up the fact that i thought he has a lying problem. My concern now is that out oldest daughter who is 5 is now lying in school. She has told her class that her sister and her grandmother is dead and that i am blind. I am not sure of what to think about this. Is she lying because if the stress if her father or is compulsive lying heratitary?
