After being in a relationship with a compulsive liar and having it fall to pieces is it possible for you to become a compulsive liar with more demented feelings as your ex?

It's possible, but because you have separated it means you weren't happy in this relationship so you expect honesty and a lot more while a compulsive liar can't help what they say, but know they are wrong about lying and are either in denial or refuse counseling for their problem. As far as you are concerned it's safe to say that you aren't a compulsive liar and it's best to move on and find someone that is better suited for you. Good luck

There is no specific clinical term for a compulsive liar. Often people lie because they are fearful of rejection or disapproval, or have a sense of inadequacy.

How do you stop compulsive lying?

If you are asking about someone other than yourself who is a compulsive liar, there is nothing you can do unless you are the parent of the person. If that's the case, you may need the help of a therapist or psychologist to find the root cause that the child is compelled to lie. Any other person than your own child, you can't control. That person must want to overcome their problem and seek help suitable for them. You can't do it for them. If you are asking because you are a compulsive liar and wish to overcome this, then you need to know what is compelling you to lie. If you don't succeed in figuring this out by yourself, a psychologist can help you. The most important step is the desire and determination to overcome it.

People mostly lie to get attention so my advice for you is find out who isn't giving you enough attention and talk to them about it.
