Does no contact work? Pros:

The short answer is, “Yes.” Certainly, it works better than anything else. It works better than contact of any kind — especially constant, annoying contact, like when you keep texting or calling or emailing or otherwise harassing your ex.

It works better than using a friend to intercede, because that method does not allow you much control over what is being said about you.

It works better than tricks like reverse psychology. And it works better than bribery, whether you are offering an all-expenses-paid vacation, or just make-up sex — because bribery is so humiliating if your offer is refused.

Does no contact work? Cons:

What about the long answer? The long answer is, “Yes, but…,” as in…

Yes, but it is hard, and requires enormous self-discipline.

Yes, but it takes a long time, because you have to wait long enough for both you and your ex to remember the good times at the beginning of your relationship, more easily than you remember the bad times at the end.

And yes, but you have a lot of work to do during the no contact period.

You have to turn yourself back into the person your ex originally fell in love with. And through it all, you have to learn to control your emotions, and keep yourself sane.
