Lying.

Mendacity doesn’t get a lot of ink in the forum, but it should. Lying can become an addiction, just like tobacco, gambling, and booze. My guess is that many ADDers invent their own “truth,” in the same way they fall victim to other impulsive behaviors. My father, who suffered terribly from ADD, raised it to an art form and flew into a blind rage when confronted. Most people fib from time to time, so it’s often unremarkable. But when it becomes habitual, red flags should fly. Before taking constant lies personally, people need to control their moral outrage, realize they might be symptomatic of a much larger, potentially debilitating problem, and help their friend/partner/family member seek professional help.
