Is pathological lying treatable/curable?

Submitted by tke584oa Fri 06/25/2010

I have finally accepted that I am a pathological liar, and wish to stop. My girlfriend is afraid though that even though I am intelligent, hardworking, and love her with all of my heart, that it will not be enough to overcome this. I truly believe that I can change myself though.

Yes, you can stop lying anytime you wish. Lying is a choice that you control every time you speak. However, since you are calling yourself a pathological liar I imagine you have been doing this for a very long time.
In other words, it is an old habit, and old habits die hard. You can change yourself but it will not be easy because you will have a tendency to slip back into that old comfortable pattern. Get a therapist who can help you understand why you lie, and get some friends to hold you
accountable to your resolve to tell the truth.

Best of luck,
Dr. Williams
