I know this isn't a recent post but I think you need some feedback to get yourself back on track.
First of all OCD comes in many forms the basic thing you need to understand is that the compulsions: i.e., your hair cutting are done as a sort of superstitious attempt to ward off reoccurring "bad" thoughts: i.e., Thoughts that harm will come to you or your family, or that you may act on random reoccurring scary/violent/sexual thoughts, etc…
*Note: Random compulsions with no obsessive thoughts or feelings of stress/urgency are not considered ocd.
*When I mention anxiety I am referring to 'anxiety as a category' which includes all forms of anxiety disorders including OCD.
Anxiety can be a result of depression and as you learn to deal with the depression and conquer it, the anxiety or compulsive actions may go away.
Also anxiety is actually a side effect of SRIs (paxil, prozac,zoloft...etc) However it should stop as your system begins to accept the meds and adapt. So if your hair cutting and other symmetry problems started occurring after you started the SRIs it could indeed be a side effect and will probably stop. However if it started with the meds and you have been on them for more than six months you should see your doctor/psychiatrist to adjust or change the medications you are on.
As for the alcohol I am unsure if that would cause anxiety when mixed with SRIs. However I do know that this could increase liver damage. Also since alcohol is categorized as a DEPRESSANT I would think it would counteract the effects of the meds, not cause anxiety. However I am not familiar with the varying effects alcohol has on one's personality because I don't drink.
If you are serious about getting well I strongly suggest you stop drinking because it will only impair your thinking and delay focus on reality which will delay recovery because to recover you need to confront your feelings and your life. You need to accept things and make any needed changes. And if you are constantly hiding behind the bottle you will never be able to make these changes. I hope I helped and I hope you get back on track if you are not already.
