I can't stop telling lies and I fear it's going to me in trouble eventually

DEAR DEIDRE: EVER since I was a schoolboy I have been telling lies. I have tried to get out of the habit but can’t.

I’m the youngest of five and have always been small for my age.

My two brothers made it clear they didn’t want me around.

My sisters were kinder but said boys don’t play the same games as girls.

At school I was always left out and that’s when I decided to lie to the teachers about other kids.

I’m now 36 and I lie about ­people at work, including the one friend I have.

I even write letters to the manager, pretending to be customers saying the service is bad.

I don’t care who I hurt when I lie but I know that it’s ruined my life.

DEIDRE SAYS: That’s for sure. You’ll get found out one day if you haven’t already.

You know that you will wind up alone and perhaps with no job.

The reasons for you telling lies go back a very long way.

Lying is a way to grab power.

If you can’t break the habit alone, seek therapeutic help. See bacp.co.uk.
