Re: general question.....
That's actually become one of my "warning signs" so I can stop myself from slipping back now. I didn't even realize how much I lied until I tried to stop. I would lie to make excuses, I would lie to make my life seem more exciting, I would lie to myself to try to believe I was something. It got so bad that I was at the point where I would lie about where I'd been, what I'd ate...silly stuff that no one really cares about the answer generally but I did it anyways. My sister has been the best cause she'll call me on it everytime. Knowing the problem is there is the start to fixing it. Like the above post said its a coping mechanism so now that you're ware of it, you just need to find a different way to cope that doesn't disrupt your life as much. Good luck!
