    Lately I have much less patience for everything and also less motivation to do stuff that needs to be done.
    What can be the cause of this? And most importantly what can I do about this?

    I have experienced of mental changes after following relapse period. My mental was unstable and I snapped easily over minor incoveniences. I hated what I have become but now I am pretty sure that this has to do with the prefrontal cortex thing in the brain.

    Once you tried to quit any addiction, your brain undergoes a lot of chemical imbalances because it wants to get its fixes, porn.
    You cannot do anything about it. I choose to hang on. The longest I have gone without pmoing was 3 months.
    today and the other days, my motivation was low. I didn't want to do anything and I had no patience. I got angry easily. These behaviors always happened as soon as I relapsed. This is not coincidences. Pmo is the cause of these mental problems.

    On the bright side, My patience usually return to normal after 3 months without pmo.

    I lost my patience too starting a couple of days ago. It was about a month after no pmo, I guess as fishfoody says there must be some chemical rebalancing.
