Medication helped me a lot with this. But other things have helped too. The biggest has been learning mindfulness meditation. Basically it's a way to train your mind, so that you have more control over it. I've slacked off on meditating lately, but when I was doing it regularly, I really could control my obsessions a lot better. I could even do things like stop a song that was stuck in my head! Now that I'm not practicing regularly, it's a lot harder.

There are lots of books and web sites and CDs, etc. about mindfulness meditation out there. And depending on where you live, there might be meditation centers that have classes or workshops or meditation instructors. I really recommend looking into this if you want to try to stay off meds and also control ruminations or obsessions.
