Has anyone had success with using the NC rule? I'm using it right now and it's been 2 weeks.

Yes, but I wasn't doing it to get him back. He just thought he could still keep me around as a friend and emotional support while being single and screwing around. When I told him that wasn't an option, he was ok with it for a while, and then wanted to get back together pretty bad.
I didn't want him back though. The NC rule, for me, was to heal and get over him. If it takes going NC to get them back when they were quite sure about breaking up, it's probably not going to last anyway.1
