This is something you are doing to stop the ocd. (ritualizing). You do this because you think it helps you. It's like biting your nails when you are anxious. It all has to do w/anxiety. What makes you want to bite your tongue - is it distressing thoughts or something else? How often are you doing it on a daily basis - do you think?
