How long does a contamination feeling can last..

Recommended Posts

... once on started to expose yourself to the thing that feel contaminated by tought?

An event in my life made me expose myself to a LOT of obsessions since yesterday. I watched a movie that was one of the worst obsession that I had to face and surprisingly, it was much less difficult that I tought. I even put an image of the movie as a wallpaper on my computer to  willingly contaminate everything I'll do on the internet. So, my question is, if I expose myself to this daily, how long can it take so that my brain stop to associate this movie to my obsessive tought?

That depends how quickly you stop your compulsions. The E in ERP does stand for exposure but that us only half of it. RP is for response prevention and that means not doing compulsions.
