    We don't always have full control of our thoughts. Consider how our minds get carried away during anxiety attacks or in the depths of depression.

    I think intrusive thoughts of this kind are similar to the relapse dreams that many people here also experience. That is, it's the desperate, dirty tactics of a dying addiction trying to get you to reinforce it neurologically via relapse.

    Remember, as I'm sure you know, that they're just thoughts. Your thoughts aren't you. You don't always have to identify with them and it's healthy to be able to detach yourself from the more irrational ones in this way. The addiction's losing, man. Keep going!

    I wasn't very anxious. My intrusive thoughts weren't good at all but they passed. Try to count to 30 in your mind without thinking about it. If you think of the thought then start from 1 again. It's challenging and keeps you away from the thought.
