Our expert says:
You CAN'T stop lying ? That's a lie ! You CAN. You haven't yet done so, and you're unlikely to stop while you keep convincing yourself its not possible.
Its called Pathological Lying when you lie even when likely to be discovered or when there's really no benefit. Underlying this, it sounds like a sad lack of self-esteem - why wouldn;t your actual like and personality be interesting enough without being decorated by falsities ? Lying is indeed ugly, and when, inevitably, it is discovered, you look more foolish and less interesting. See a counsellor and deal with this ; learn to be proud of who you and your husband actually are, and what you actually do.
Recognizing that this is a bad habit is the essential first step ; now see a counsellor and unlearn the bad habit, and learn to enjoy who you really are and what you really do
