Is it possible to become addicted to lying?

I think lying can be an addiction compared to drugs or alcohol.

My brother has been lying as long as I can remember but the lies

have become almost obsessive to him. His lies now even involve

family members supposedly being dead, people (family) having

horrible diseases they don't even have and the list goes on. When

he is caught he sugar coats the issue, attempts to justify it and

then begins a new lie. A large number of things are addicting, but

I'm not sure if lying is one of them. But look at it this way:

Usually one lie leads to another, so if you start, you have to

continue or come clean. If you think you have to continue, then I

think you could you could that it's addcitive.
