Hello, I am very sorry that you are having this issue with compulsive lying. As you know this is NOT a treatment website, so I can only answer questions and give information on what you can try next in terms of treatment. May I ask, for how long has this been an issue for you? Do you have any other symptoms associated with this compulsive lying? What diagnoses have you been given associated with this compulsive lying? What types of therapy have you tried in the past (e.g. CBT, DBT, Psychodynamic, etc...)? Have you been prescribed any psychotropic medications in the past and if so which ones?
