    Currently I am recovering from a few times a week porn addiction and am on my 27th day of no relapse. This is the furthest I have ever gotten and I couldn’t be happier with that fact. But recently I have noticed that a bunch of the things I used to like doing, things I even liked doing when my streaks were only like two or three days long, no longer excite me in a way. I want to do those things, but I just don’t have the motivation to do them and even when I force myself to give them a try, I feel nothing but ehh and along with a bit of lethargy.

    Is this a side effect of my recovery? Is it something I need to be worried about? Or should I just wait it out and take things day by day until I feel better?

    Just wait it out bro. I go through major phases of demotivation and lack of energy to do things with long streaks. I have a feeling it has to do with the brain trying to learn to rewire itself in a way that it doesn't expect that giant hit of dopamine that it used to get from PMO and because of this, other things just seem boring or old. Keep strong brother! All love!
