    With no longer/without no longer

    Which one is the grammatical correct form?

    "With no longer" or "without no longer"?

    Re: With no longer/without no longer

    They are not grammatical forms. Can you provide an example sentence?

    Re: With no longer/without no longer

    For instance, "I want to go out without/with no longer having to think about...etc."

    With or without? Can I use double negative such as without and no?

    Re: With no longer/without no longer

    Your sentence would be natural as I want to go out without having to think about ... any longer.

    Re: With no longer/without no longer

    I think you could also use:

    I want to go out and no longer have to think about xxx.

    Or

    I want to go out without having to think about xxxx.
