    You need to know what each of those terms mean. Generally, obsessive compulsion is when a person feels compulsively driven to a certain behaviour, to relieve anxiety. Withdrawal symptoms are not so much mental (although they can be) as they are physiological - the body becomes so used to a drug to the point where it relies on the drug and stops naturally making what the drug provides. So the PHYSICAL body becomes DEPENDENT on the drug :-).
