Default Re: Need some help

I think ZanOra is right on target here. You can try to limit yourself, you can try to use your awareness of 'that' feeling that preceeds the behavior as a cue to find something else to do. But, if you have 'Real' OCD, then I'm afraid the only thing that will fix it is medication and therapy. That's b/c OCD is caused by a chemical issue in the brain, you cannot 'will' yourself out of it. It's like the diabetic 'willing' themself out of low/high blood sugar. Only regular insulin injections and careful diet can do that.
