It should never be forgotten that however your OCD got started, the mechanism that creates it in real-time is psychological - OCD, like anxiety disorders and depression, are psychological habits. The important point here is that habits can be changed. To change any emotional habit we need to make it conscious (most habits operate out of consciousness) and we need to neutralize the associated compulsive emotional charge that powers the habit. This can be done very effectively through Mindfulness Therapy and mindfulness practices.
