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.
