There may be reasons that you may feel obligated to stretch the truth..so when you have a compulsion to lie, there is an underlying psychological force driving you to this behavior. This underlying force rests in your subconscious mind...and it is necessary to address the subconscious mind directly in order to overcome your lying habit.
Some people lie because they are afraid that the truth is not interesting enough... and others feel the urge because there is an element of excitement in getting away with telling a lie..only to find it has backfired. In some cases, the lies are simply reflexive in nature...and are habits that are difficult to break..but,! it can be done.
If you really want to stop lying, you can begin by determining how severe your tendency to lie really is... You may find that you really don’t stretch the truth too often, but the problem is enough that it has led you here to find support/guidance...so identifying the problem, no matter how minor, major is the first step.
A compulsion is a very difficult thing to break...and this is because there is a driving force that leads you to this behavior. However when you can’t stop telling lies, you may have an emotional or psychological reason for doing so...so the botXXXXX XXXXXne, is that the behavior needs to stop before it interrupts your life...any longer.
There are a few thoughts when it comes to a pattern or way of behaving. I believe that its necessary to delve deep into the reasons as to 'why' you feel you need to lie ?and the way that you go about it.? and what purpose does it fulfill ? Once you realize these two major points..then you can begin to address the problem, and train yourself to behave otherwise..Another way to address the problem and to rehabilitate yourself...would be by Hypnosis as this is a merging of the two schools of thought... and you are able to delve deep into your subconscious mind, which allows you to work through the complex inner emotions and motivations. You are also able to change your behavior by changing your thought patterns.
