I read a lovely statement in an ocd recovery book - when we die our intray will still be full. I find this helps me to try not to do too much & become stressed & therefore more prone to getting into ocd rituals.

If you were a bad person you wouldnt feel so repulsed by these thoughts. For example if a person wants to graffiti on someone's car they'll do it & enjoy it. They probably wont spend the next 5 days/weeks/months thinking about it. Maybe they are busy upsetting someone else.

I've read Brainlock cover to cover twice. Friends of mine in ocd recovery (as i am) have also read it. We think it is a great book & very helpful. I've had cbt too, which is reasonably effective.
