Moon's recession from Earth

Going over a few lectures now about tides and I saw an interesting question

"Under what circumstances will the moon's recession from Earth cease?"

Anyone here have an idea? As far as I know, the moon's angular momentum constantly increases as is the radial distance between it and the Earth.

We can't provide answers to your study/homework questions.
But you should try thinking about what causes the moon to recess, and therefore, how might that stop so that it no longer recesses?
