Wow, obsessions are tough. Usually lead to compulsions. It is easy to say 'find replacement thoughts,' but that is the typical 'key' that eliminates the bad imagery. There has to be a great immersion in B-mod processes and linking automatic thoughts to better connections that are less discordant. This isn't for implosion/flooding but distraction on other topics is often the better route.

PTSD can be a real ugly animal. I do things for Vietnam bets who just can't get images out of their head. Flash Backs. I've seen some vets move on with life and others still need treatment at Veterans hospitals. I have flash back about a few things and I just have to find something immediately to occupy my mind as in a hobby or something that can over power them.
