Almost every one you know has lied about something for various reasons.
Lying is considered to be a way to cover the truth because of some kind
of fear. It could be fear of getting hurt, being rejected, humiliated,
judged and so many more. But when a person lies in an exaggerated manner
and continues doing so for no reason, this person maybe suffering from a
compulsive lying disorder.

Considered to be a mental disorder, compulsive lying can be traced to the
person’s constant need for attention. In most cases, the line separating
reality and truth has become so distorted that the person no longer
realizes that he is lying. If the person continues, friends and families
will no longer believe him and the person’s credibility is shattered.
Remembering the story of the boy who cried wolf, a compulsive liar will
be alienated and never trusted.

A person most at risk for compulsive lying   is someone who is not
comfortable with himself. Because of this,   the person ends up creating
stories and believing it himself. You will   even be surprised at the
consistencies of his lies. This only shows   that compulsive lying is
indeed a psychological disorder.

If you happen to know someone who has picked up the habit of compulsive
lying, you should help this person by taking him to see a medical expert.
Fortunately this disorder is treatable once the cause and risk factors
are determined. As soon as the reasons have been established, doctors
will recommend a treatment program.

One of the most effective ways to treat compulsive lying is through
hypnotherapy. This method involves altering a person’s subconscious and
leaving suggestions that he should stop lying. Of course, this is done
when a person is under the influence of hypnotism. When availing of this
treatment, make sure that the person doing the hypnotherapy is qualified
and have had several clinical experiences.

On the other hand, if you are the one suffering from compulsive lying, it
would generally be difficult to self-diagnose. In fact, compulsive liars
are known to deny it. You will not be able to notice symptoms although
the people around you would certainly take notice and point them out to
you. Before it gets worse, you can always see a hypnotherapist, who
specializes in compulsive lying. Your doctor or counselor could help you
unearth the real reasons why you lie and help you recover your
credibility.
