Is 3 weeks NC way to soon to give up hope?

Sorry, another NC question. My ex broke up with me 3 months ago (some of you know my story, sorry for asking lots of questions). The longest we went during that time with NC was 3 weeks, then I broke it. He has told me a week and a half ago that he is happier without me. That he has moved on and that I should move on without him. He said we will never be together again.

So, since that conversation, I've gone back to NC. It's been 1 week, 3 days. I know NC is to help you move on, but it can also help get your ex back. I've been noticing a lot of people posting questions that they went 2-6 months no contact before their ex contacted them.

so the question is...since I do hope my ex will one day realize he made a mistake and come back to me, should I at least give it a few months before losing ALL hope? Any suggestions, advice, stories, examples would be helpful. Or just a yes or no will suffice :) Thanks
