Unwanted thoughts: Try as  The Memory Hack Review they might, an individual can't seem to stop the intrusive thoughts. They are terrorists who infiltrate all defenses, the army that breaches the parameter. Ironically, the more one resists the thoughts, the stronger their attack. What it isn't. An obsession is not an addiction. An obsession is unwanted, one-hundred percent of the time. Not so with an addicted thought. A gambler wants to gamble, but resists the urge knowing that it ultimately is a harmful course of action. With an obsession, there is no enjoyment whatsoever.

Inappropriate thoughts: OCD thoughts are ego-dystonic, meaning "against the person's very nature." The sufferer knows the thoughts are irrational and illogical. Yet, they keep coming. The thoughts are exaggerated, disturbing, and highly inappropriate. For many, the obsessive thoughts are truly awful- thoughts of stabbing themselves or others, being attacked by bloody horror-movie villains, or sexually abusing children. A pedophile enjoys sexual thoughts involving children. An OCD individual experiencing deviant sexual thoughts abhors them.

What it isn't. Obsessive thoughts are not psychotic thoughts. A psychotic individual believes the inappropriate thought is rational. Convinced the FBI is trailing one's car because two hundred dollars was withdrawn from the ATM today rather than the normal forty, is a psychotic thought not an OCD one. I don't struggle with OCD but I got a taste of it recently.
