They are stopped each time you become aware of one.

An intrustive thought is one that is not welcomed or is abberative, not something you lay claim to.

Each time you recognize an intrustive thought, tell it to GET OUT.  You can also override an intrustive thought by replacing it with another, more accurate thought.

Awareness is key and apparently you are aware.  So, no problem..
