Books for Repetitive Unwanted Thoughts:
"The Imp of the Mind" by Lee Baer, PhD
"White Bears and Other Unwanted Thoughts" by Daniel M. Wegner

I got these both from Amazon for pretty cheap.

I have ocd too and the first counselor i went to as I had the check and recheck oven off door locked etc, over and over and over again, she broke me of the habit by suggesting ibuy a small pocketsize notebook and write down on one side the bad habits and along the top say, the dates, when I checked each ITEM ONE TIME i was to put a check mark in appropriate spot in notebook that way when I left and thought OMG Did I turn off the stove, I could check for the check mark and that eased my mind, woujld not have marked it if I DIDNT turn off the stove, eventually didn't need the notebook anymore and only checked things once after doing them, i was shocked but it really worked.

Jeffrey Schwartz has a GREAT BOOK called Brain Lock that helped me a lot!

Claire Weekes has several books... I like Hope and Help For your nerves. Talk about comforting!!!

Richard Carlson's book You can be happy no matter what is far from some cheesy book.. it has excellent tips to deal with depression and anxiety!!!!

These books may not be online but I know that portions or exceprt of Schwartz book are... hope this helps

Thank you so much for this sticky thread, it's very useful to share together all resources, both books & sites for OCD here. I gathered a lot of wonderful resources here that I'm gonna check at my leisure... & I really liked most the site of free downloadable papers for CBT work, that's something I've never thought I could ever find on the net & the books seem really useful but I don't know how to get them since I'm living in Egypt, & OCD books wouldn't probably be sold here Besides, ordering them from Amazon for shipping to Egypt would be awfully expensive

I run a site called OCD Dave at ocddave.com.
I'd recommend Judith Rapoport's The Boy Who Couldn't Stop Washing and Mark Crawford's The Obsessive-Compulsive Trap as good book reads.

Deep breathing exercises work for calming anxiety of trichotillomania urges. Also I do physical exercise every morning to avoid thinking about pulling my hair out. I'm still coping with trichotillomania for about 10 years now. I have more tips that helps me to avoid trichotillomania during the day, if anyone one need tips let me know. I hope this helps.
