This is difficult, firstly the person in question needs to realise they have a problem, and it doesn't matter how many times someone else tells them, they need to arrive at the realization on their own terms. Mostly liars seem to think their behaviour is normal, of course it depends on the person. Does the liar acutally believe his own lies? Or are they simply willing to go to any lengths to try and convince others of his liars - regardless of the consequences, this is often the difference between a pathological liar and a compulsive liar. If they finally do realise they need help, then approaching a doctor would be the first step, as they will recommend further treatment, probably with a psychiatrist. Unfortunatly there is no easy cure, and no pills that will really help, the only way for them to stop lieing is to discover the reason behind their actions, it is a long and difficult road but if they are determined they can beat this.
