  1. Admit that you have a problem lying. This may sound bad to some people but if you think of it you should notice that if you can confront that you lie then you should be able to stop. When you can say that you lie to someone then you should be able to stop. To some this would be really hard; as for some it’s even harder. All you have to think of is that when you can talk about it then you start stopping yourself.
  2. React to your own lies. If you don’t know how just read and you’ll find out how. Well, to react to your own lies means to confess and apologize when you know you lied. This will help you because you would be able to notice that you have told and are sorry for what you have done.


  • Use your sense of humor to tell the truth. Laugh at yourself with other people. Just saying "Could I be any worse at managing my checking account?" out loud, rather than denying your problem can get you on the road to recovery.
  • Guess what - the definition of being human is that we are not perfect. You will never be perfect! Don't set yourself up thinking you should be.
  • Come right out with your primary feeling. "Sam, I am so completely embarrassed by what I did. I'm hating myself. I told Kim you liked her, even though you told me not to. Would you forgive me?"
  • When you admit that you are a liar you are nearly there.
  • Often lying emerges as a result of a feeling of inadequacy, or a need to protect the truth from others and thus leave yourself less vulnerable. Learn to accept that truth is the right of all people; take a deep breath, think about the person to whom you are speaking and what they would say if they knew you were lying, open your mouth, and speak the truth. After you do this you will feel a release of guilt and relief.
  • Don't tell yourself you are telling the truth if you are lying. If you don't know a question that one of your friends or family members asks you say that you don't know instead of lying to yourself and to your friends and family to look cool. It will just come back and bite you in the butt!
  • If you lie a lot over everything, realize that you can't stop in one go. It's just like a drug, it's really hard to stop. You need to slow it down. Parents will tell you when you are about to lie you should stop and ask yourself, "Is this wrong?" Try asking yourself, "Is this a lie" really quickly. It takes time, but eventually you will stop if you really try. Also ask yourself how you would feel if people constantly lied to you.
  • You can't stop lying unless you want to, it's up to you.
  • Remember, it is way easier to just tell the truth than having to come up with a lie.
  • Ask your self why you lie, and try to resolve the problem.
