    To be obsessed with, it's an adjective.

    To obsess over, it's a verb.

    So your sentances should read:

    I'm obsessed with sth.

    I don't obsess over sth.

    You are obsessed with something/someone (a thing), and you are obsessing over an idea.

    Example: You are obsessed with Patric.

    You are obsessing over looking good.

    It would be "to obsess over" something. That would be proper english.

    To become obsessed with is the proper vernacular.

    You would say "I am (not) obsessed WITH _____."

    If you wanted to use 'over' you would say, "I am obsessing over ____ right now."

    I'd stick with "with".

    both. if you're obsessed, you do it thoroughly - under, over, with, beside, inside, beneath, on.

    "Obsessed with" and "obsess over."
