There is no timetable but I would say for me after a month or two of practicing ignoring the thoughts it became more clear. But it could take longer depending on how much you've built OCD into a habit. It's all about breaking this terrible habit and it may take some time. The hardest part was brushing off new triggers that arise in the day. The way you can tell if you're doing better is by tracking your rumination throughout the day. I know Ali preaches this but it is really important to reduce the numbers and see the numbers go down. I'm still currently fighting OCD but I would say I ruminate less than 1% of my day. I'm currently into 2 months of really following my recovery but I know Ali said you have to be strong because it could take up to six months to truly reach full recovery.
